Well 4 Cathodic Protection System

Well No. 4 reservoir.

DESCRIPTION

PROJECT ID: W 11.0
ESTIMATED COST: $60,000
ACTUAL COST: $33,530
  • Install a cathodic protection system in the interior of the reservoir
  • Using relatively inert anodes connected to a power supply
  • System will be suspended inside the reservoir, protecting reservoir from corrosion

WHY IT’S NEEDED

The Well No. 4 reservoir has been repainted four times since its construction due to rusting steel, which naturally reacts with water and oxygen. Cathodic protection extends the life of a steel water reservoir by providing a sacrificial anode within the reservoir.
