  • President Obama Signs the Water Resources Reform & Development Act into Law

    President Obama signs the Water Resources Reform & Development Act (WRRDA) into law which funds the nation's waterway, ports, levees, dams, and other important water infrastructure. Corrosion control is one of the foremost causes for concern and WRRDA has set recommendations for the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) to have essential corrosion control plans in place. Unmitigated corrosion risks public safety, harms the environment, and costs U.S. taxpayers $276 billion each year. If properly installed and maintained, corrosion prevention technologies, such as MATCO Services innovative "System Wide Cathodic Protection" or our EPRI approvided "Tier Testing of Supplier Coatings" prior to application to determine coating characteristics and corrosion barrier properties, can significantly mitigate corrosion and eliminate corrosion risk to substanial degrees.
