AbstractCathodic protection is a viable measure to extend the residual life of water mains and thus defer capital investments in their rehabilitation and renewal. The effectiveness of cathodic protection varies with the unique set of conditions under which it is applied and it is therefore difficult to quantify. Consequently, reported case histories have been largely anecdotal and most often based on the observed reduction of water main breaks following the application of cathodic protection.
