The Weston, Wisconsin Water Utility discovered the deterioration of a portion of its asbestos-cement watermain and subsequently research to identify an effective means of halting the release of asbestos fibers into its potable water was begun. Three techniques were investigated for eliminating or reducing the release of fibers into the water: (a) formation of a protective metallic precipitate layer on the pipe surface utilizing zinc chloride, (b) in situ cement-mortar lining of the pipe, and (c) flushing of watermains. Implementation of the above three asbestos control processes would have widely differing capital and operational costs.
