Hayes, C., M. Schock, AND D. Lytle. Internal Corrosion Control of Water Supply Systems Code of Practice. IWA Publishing, London, Uk, ISBN978178040454, (2012).

Description:

This Code of Practice is part of a series of publications by the IWA Specialist Group on Metals and Related Substances in Drinking Water. It complements the following IWA Specialist Group publications: 1. Best Practice Guide on the Control of Lead in Drinking Water 2. Best Practice Guide on the Sampling and Monitoring of Metals in Drinking Water 3. Guide for Small Community Water Suppliers and Local Health Officials on Lead in Drinking Water. The Code of Practice is concerned with metal pick-up by drinking water within the water supply chain, particularly copper, iron and lead, and to a lesser extent nickel and zinc. The emphasis is on cold drinking water at its point of use by consumers. The intention is that this Code of Practice establishes an international standard for the control of internal corrosion of water supply systems. It has been produced by an international panel of authors with representation from regulatory agencies, water utilities, professional institutions, technical consultancies, research institutes and universities. It has also been subjected to wide-spread peer review. The Code of Practice will be reviewed and the e-book version updated on an annual basis to ensure that it keeps up to date with the needs of the user. It will be particularly important to adapt to changes in regulations, some of which are likely to become more stringent.

Purpose/Objective:

The Code of practice is concerned with metal pick-up by drinking water within the water supply chai, particularly copper, iron and lead, and to a lesser extent nickel and zinc. The emphasis is on cold drinking water at its point of use by consumers.
