In the water and wastewater utility industry, corrosion is driving up utility operating, maintenance, and capital costs and, in some cases, degrading drinking water quality. "Part 1: Examining Pipe Life" (December 2011) discussed the widespread nature of corrosion, the different types of corrosion, and the required treatments as part of a corrosion control program. This article looks at some of the political aspects associated with corrosion and pipe repair, replacement, and rehabilitation.
