Abstract

Evaluates the impact of plant-scale implementation of corrosion control for lead and copper on water quality in the distribution system (e.g., red water, turbidity, biological growth). Reports on water quality changes during full-scale implementation of new corrosion control strategies for distribution systems with a variety of characteristics (such as size, geographic location, population served, water quality, etc.) Published in 2000.
