Corrosion plagues every wastewater plant facility, equipment, lift station, and pipeline. While corrosion is basically unavoidable, the long term costs and headaches associated with it can be controlled and minimized. This webcast will provide information on the sources or corrosion and mechanisms by which it starts and spreads. Chemical effective at reducing odors compounds (particularly hydrogen sulfide) in the atmosphere at plants will be discussed. The advantages and disadvantages of each will be presented. More aggressive corrosion control through coatings, linings, and timely maintenance or rehabilitation will be the final presentation.
