AbstractPrioritization of water mains for renewal requires the simultaneous consideration of their structural integrity and hydraulic performance as well as their contribution to the deterioration of water quality. Generally, the impact of deteriorating pipes on water quality in the distribution network has not been taken into account in the decision-making process. To address this issue, the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) and American Water Works Association Research Foundation (AwwaRF) embarked on a 4-year research project (FY 2003-2007) to investigate the effects of aging water mains on water quality in distribution networks.
