Samples from the Seattle Water Department's Tolt distribution system were analyzed for chemical and bacteriological parameters. Changes from the raw water quality were observed, particularly in trace metal concentrations and other parameters related to corrosion. Distribution mains were found to be adequately protected from corrosion by cement and bituminous linings whereas service lines and household plumbing were actively corroded. Metals in the microgram/l concentration range were determined by a flameless atomic absorption technique.
