Work will soon start on the 2022 Corrosion Test Station Rehabilitation Project, which calls for the installation of 60 magnesium anodes at existing corrosion test sites throughout the District. This annual replacement program has been in place for 37 years - about 20 years after the first anodes were installed.
Magnesium anodes are gradually depleted during their service life – about 20 years. Once they are depleted, they must be replaced. This replacement project is expected to take a little more than two months, with a late November completion timeline.

Maintaining Infrastructure is Top Priority
The District’s ongoing corrosion control programs are a critical piece of our work to ensure Marin Water infrastructure continues to deliver clean, reliable water to more than 191,000 residents in central and southern Marin County. Cathodic protection, which draws corrosive processes away from our pipelines, is a crucial, and cost-effective way to extend the life of District infrastructure while saving ratepayer dollars in the process.
