Abstract: Abstract: The anodes for conventional cathodic protection (CP) systems used inside water storage tanks are often damaged by ice during cold weather. The CP system described in this report uses ceramic-coated wire anodes and a floating support system to keep the anodes submerged beneath surface ice in the tank. Demonstration systems were installed in two elevated water storage tanks at Fort Drum, NY. System performance is monitored using the existing supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system at Fort Drum. This report describes the ice-free CP system design, implementation, and performance during Fiscal Year 2005.
