Alsace Study of the corrosivity of water intended for human consumption

The study on water corrosivity in Alsace, implemented by IOWater, together with the Eurofins analysis laboratory, commissioned by the Regional Health Agency (ARS) of Alsace, ended early July 2014.
 
A data feedback meeting, on the premises of the ”ARS” in Colmar, validated the final report that summarizes the data collected throughout the study, i.e.:
  • General information on water quality parameters and their involvement in the corrosion phenomena, regulations in force, bibliographic data on the water quality impact on materials;
  • An analysis of the situation in Alsace (water quality, status of the systems, treatment performance);
  • Possible corrective actions (correction of water mineralization, use of corrosion inhibitors, curative actions in the supply system);
  • An action program for Alsace, with an estimated costing of plant rehabilitation and of the treatments to be used, and prioritization.
