Lead and Copper Control

Darin Skutt will cover the definition of corrosion and how to determine if corrosive water is present in the distribution system. Factors that influence corrosion will be discussed including pH, alkalinity, carbonate systems and other water quality parameters. The selection of phosphate chemicals to prevent corrosion in the distribution system along with the sequestering of metals will be detailed. Finally, the current lead and copper rule will be discussed with methods to monitor your corrosion control success.
