This topic will showcase new and improved techniques for corrosion prevention, mitigation, detection, and condition assessment on water infrastructure. The various structures of interest include water transmission and distribution pipelines, storage tanks, gates, and other water control structures. Protective coatings and cathodic protection are the primary methods for corrosion mitigation, and new options for long-term corrosion protection and enhanced condition assessment tools are needed for these aging structures.
