Resources on Steel Industry and Water

More than 135 years ago, the first steel pipe ever laid in America began supplying water to the population of San Francisco. This five-mile long conduit—unlined, uncoated and unwrapped—was the first of millions of miles of pipe and millions of tons of steel used to create the infrastructure of America’s water, chemical and petrochemical distribution and transmission infrastructure.

As a testament to steel's durability, this pipe is still in service today. With considerable and ongoing improvements in the quality of mill steel, fabrication technology, welding, linings, coatings, and cathodic protection, the combination of steel's strength, performance, and durability remains unparalleled.

The steel industry protects the integrity and safe transportation of drinking water for hundreds of millions of Americans. An investment in infrastructure protects this vital resource for all communities.
