Legacy of Manganese Accumulation in Water Systems

Manganese (Mn) that slowly builds up inside a water pipe is called "legacy Mn." Legacy Mn can threaten public health if mobilized and released into tap water. Through Project #4314, our Water Institute assisted the Water Research Foundation design best practices for utilities to proactively minimize accumulation and reduce potential release episodes.
