Water distribution pipes needs to be replaced

It is good to know that great care is taken in purifying and testing drinking water at source. Care should also be taken in distribution of water. I come to know through the readers of this blog, that the water distribution pipes in Cuddalore were laid some 40 years back. These galvanised iron pipes are rusted and damaged at many places because of drainage, (cement) road laying and cable laying works over the years. People using municipal water say that initially they get a pale yellow colored water with rusts, and that they get clear water only after sometime. This shows that there is problem in the distribution pipes.
