RMOW looking into corrosion in Whistler water system

The municipality of Whistler is working with UBC civil engineering professor Loretta Li and engineering firm Kerr Wood Leidal Associates to examine corrosion in Whistler’s water distribution system, reports Pique newsmagazine.

The study, which started this month, will continue for the next two years, Li said.

“We also will look at different kinds of factors, for example the water temperature, the pH effects, and also stagnant or non stagnant (water sources),” she said, adding that the results could be useful for communities across Canada.
