AbstractUsually severe soil conditions in the Greater Winnipeg area have resulted in numerous and expensive failures in the municipal water distribution system. Previous research had concluded that the corrosive action of magnesium, sodium, and calcium sulphates in the soil has caused rapid deterioration of cast-iron pipe in as little as ten to twelve years. It has been suspected that the pipe thus weakened often failed under the induced stresses caused by the shrinkage and swelling of the supporting and covering soils.
