US Filter Operational Services (“USFOS”) maintains and operates the wastewater collection and treatment facilities in Cranston, Rhode Island. In the Spring of 2002 a concern was raised about the potential for dissolved sulfide generation and related odor and corrosion in a particular reach of the Cranston sanitary sewer collection system. USFOS therefore decided to investigate the sulfide generation potential in this sewer under the expected operating conditions. If such a potential was shown to exist, a cost comparison would be made between the construction and operation of a chemical feed station and outright removal and replacement of the ductile iron pipe with a corrosion resistant material.
