Mr. T. K. Spalding
Director, Gas Pipeline Safety Division
West Virginia Public Service Commission
Charleston, WV 25305

Dear Mr. Spalding:

This responds to your letter dated November 5, 1975, in which you questioned "How often must
individual anodes be monitored on an unprotected bare transmission or distribution pipeline that
has 'hot spot' protection, which 'hot spot' protection would include the anodes installed in
connection with corrosion-leak repair clamps?"

Under 49 CFR Part 192, Subpart I, Requirements for Corrosion Control, there are no monitoring
requirements for monitoring individual anodes. However, Sections 192.457 and 192.465 provide
requirements for the corrosion control and monitoring of bare transmission or distribution

We trust that this will answer your question.


Cesar DeLeon
Acting Director
Office of Pipeline
