  1. Our country is yet to find a corrosion management and maintenance policy suitable for resolving corrosion growth and associated contamination issues reported for old infrastructure. Present water quality monitoring does not cover the corrosion and material degradation concerns. Our water policy needs to be greatly modified to include these issues.
