Corrosion control has been known both as a cost-saving and as a health protection method for almost a century. But, surprisingly, relatively little field and laboratory research has been conducted contrasting alternative approaches or presenting results before and after such water treatment programs were implemented. A thorough review of chemical treatment strategies and engineering technologies, a presentation and analysis of field trials, and a summary of costs incurred for various treatment approaches is needed. Unfortunately, the data are far from complete. However, all water systems across the country, public and private, are being required now to address both the health risks of drinking water contaminated by corrosion by-products and the cost-reducing potential of corrosion treatment. The paper presents a snapshot summary of the state of current knowledge about control of internal corrosion, focussing particularly on lead and copper corrosion.
