REACTIONS OF COPPER AND CHROMIUM WITH EXTERNAL SURFACE OF WATER PIPELINES IN SOIL
Publication Date : 01/08/2012
Water companies are facing problems of leakages and breakage of water pipelines that result into an increasing loss of water in the tune of Mega litres daily. Corrosion of metallic pipelines is one of the major causes of weakening the strength of water pipeline, which subsequently results into water leakage. In the wake of ever growing environmental pollution, this paper focuses on the reactions of soil contaminants; Copper (Cu) and Chromium (Cr) with external surface of buried water pipeline systems. Study of the behavior of the two metals in soil reveals that up to 7.852 mg/l of iron in solution was produced as a result of the pipeline’s interaction with the two metals.
