Effect of corrosion on Metrowater Supply in Chennai, India - Is replacement of corroded pipe metallurgy with another material the only choice for finding answers to corrosion problems and water conservation?

Parts of north Chennai are likely to have better water supply since the leaks in the pipelines catering for the localities are being rectified as part of water conservation measures of Chennai Metrowater.
This has been taken up under the Rs.39-crore leak detection and rectification scheme being implemented in a phased manner. The water agency had already implemented the scheme across the city a few years ago. Of the nearly 1,400-km-long pipeline network, a stretch of 466-km long pipeline detected with leaks was replaced.
