Practical Solutions to External Corrosion Problems on Buried Water Mains WEBINAR
ONLINE REGISTRATION IS CLOSED FOR THIS EVENT - TO VIEW THE ARCHIVED WEBINAR - PLEASE USE A CONTACT FORM AND WE WILL SEND YOU THE WEBINAR WHEN IT BECOMES AVAILABLE
WEBINAR TYPE: Technical Webinar
SUMMARY:Corrosion of various forms of buried cast iron, ductile iron, and steel piping is a serious problem to most municipal water utilities. However, infrastructure asset management tools combined with cathodic protection can reduce the number of premature breaks caused by corrosion. Properly designed, installed, and maintained cathodic protection systems can add years of additional service life to both new and existing water mains.
This webinar will provide the viewer with a basic understanding of common corrosion mechanisms and also present several real-world projects that have demonstrated how cathodic protection can economically extend the service life of both new and existing buried water utility infrastructure.
REGISTRATION & HOURS: This webinar will begin at 12:00pm and conclude by 1:00pm CST. Earn up to 1 PDH or RTC hour. After registering with Illinois Section AWWA, attendees will be furnished via email with all materials and links needed to participate in the webinar. Questions? Call 866-521-3595 Ext. 3
