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.
