Weekly Poll (8)


In April, a stress corrosion crack was to blame for a gas pipeline explosion that occurred just north of Mexico, Missouri. Reports indicate that the pipeline was previously tested in 2015, involving a magnetic field test. However, when a hydrotest was taken of the pipe following the incident, the test failed four times prior to its success. Do you believe pipeline inspections should be using hydro-technology over magnetic methods?


A coastal North Carolina apartment building was evacuated due to extensive corrosion, bringing to light the lack of regular inspections on seafront buildings. Do you think routine inspections should be mandated?
