Sourcing corrosive sewer sulfides Sewer systems are corroding at an alarming rate, costing governments billions of dollars to replace. Differences among water treatment systems make it difficult to track down the source of corrosive sulfide responsible for this damage. Pikaar et al. performed an extensive industry survey and sampling campaign across Australia (see the Perspective by Rauch and Kleidorfer). Aluminum sulfate added as a coagulant during drinking water treatment was the primary… 
Corrosion of reinforcing steel in concrete sewers.
Wastewater-Enhanced Microbial Corrosion of Concrete Sewers.
TLDR
Analysis of the long-term profiles of the sulfide uptake rate using a Gompertz model supported the enhanced corrosion activity and greater corrosion loss caused by wastewater inoculation, which coincided with the environmental conditions of increased levels of gaseous H2S and the concrete type.
Corrosion and odor management in sewer systems.
Modeling sulfide production in full flow concrete sewers based on the HRT variation of sewerage.
TLDR
Based on the data of COD and HRT obtained in the realistic sewer, the production of sulfide in the sewer can be predicted for better maintaining sewers through sulfide control.
Electrochemical Abatement of Hydrogen Sulfide from Waste Streams
Hydrogen sulfide is ubiquitously present in many waste streams originating from industrial activities as well as in sewage. It needs to be removed as it is toxic, corrosive, and odorous. Conventional
Increased resistance of nitrite-admixed concrete to microbially induced corrosion in real sewers.
TLDR
The results obtained in this field study demonstrated that this novel use of calcium nitrite as an admixture in concrete is a promising strategy to mitigate the microbially induced corrosion in sewers.

Transportation of reclaimed wastewater through a long pipe: Inhibition of sulphide production by nitrite from the secondary treatment
TLDR
During the transportation, nitrite inhibited the appearance of anaerobic conditions, and, consequently, no sulphide generation occurred, and a parallel behaviour between the nitrite depletion and the oxidation‐reduction potential evolution along the pipeline was observed.
The Chlorine Dilemma
TLDR
A series of recent studies suggest that changes in the operation of water treatment systems during the past decade have had unintended consequences that pose risks to public health and the environment.

TLDR
The study supports that alum sludge beneficial reuse as a low cost adsorbent for P immobilization should study its P-adsorption capacity before any decision of large application is made since the raw water quality will affect the sludge characteristics and therefore influence its adsorption ability.
