An 18-month monitoring program evaluated the relationship between copper plumbing corrosion and variations in delivered water quality in several communities in the Pacific Northwest. Significant relationships were found for copper corrosion rate dependence on pH and free chlorine residual. Regression analysis provided a statistical means of identifying the important predictors of copper corrosion rates in low mineral waters.
