A new potable water reservoir was constructed in Tarragona, Spain. Based on past experiences, migrating corrosion inhibitors were selected to provide long-term protection against corrosion and help meet a 50-year design life. The admixtures had no apparent negative effects on the setting time or physical properties of the concrete.
