AbstractThe lack of sufficient historical data on the deterioration of buried critical infrastructure such as large-diameter transmission water mains and trunk sewers is an obstacle to formulating an effective strategy for managing its failure risk. These historical data are required to model rates of deterioration in order to anticipate and prevent future failures without resorting to frequent inspections that are both very costly and disruptive.
