AbstractUtilities in the United States increasingly report that their treatment system upgrades are driven by the need to comply with new and forthcoming United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) regulations (AWWA 2000). These treatment adjustments lead to corresponding changes in the distributed water quality. The main objective of this research project is to identify research needs for evaluating water quality impacts on distribution infrastructure integrity. This is achieved by identifying missing links in the complex interrelation among water quality regulations, which drive new treatment technologies, which result in primary and secondary impacts on water quality in distribution system, which ultimately affect the distribution infrastructure integrity.
