ABSTRACT
The article reports on the need for a complete re-piping job of the corroded galvanized-steel potable-water pipes at the main dining hall of the West Texas A&M University (WTAMU) in Canyon, Texas. WTAMU master plumber Roger Wilson says that the water quality of the dining hall had become so compromised because of the corrosion.
