In Part 2, we will address the slowly developing problems in utility water systems. Too often, water-plant problems evolve slowly. Plant personnel fail to detect the non-conformances and failures occur with no clear causal events. Table 2 lists some examples of slowly developing problems.  The obvious method to detect these slowly developing problems is to conduct frequent reviews of historical data for water chemistry and performance test results, identify non-conformances and implement the proper corrective actions. Examples of data reviews includes trend data for conformance to specification limits of the boiler and cooling water systems and weekly inspections of the appeara
