Today’s municipal infrastructure assets were designed to be in service 60 to 100 years. 

Many systems are past their prime and V&A engineers assist agencies in protecting these assets from a shortened service life due to the damaging effects of corrosion. We pinpoint the causes of corrosion—whether atmospheric, immersed, or buried—and recommend solutions for mitigating their damaging effects. Our process approach incorporates evaluation of assets to determine the extent of corrosion, design corrosion control/cathodic protection system, and finally plan master corrosion control plans for long-term protection and operation.
