In water management the process of fouling describes the deposition of particles on wetted surfaces due to gravity. If water supply networks employ cast iron pipes without cement mortar lining, fouling may develop on all internal pipe surfaces. This type of fouling is created by a calcium carbonate/iron mixture. Under certain conditions, fouling in water pipes may grow to such an extent that only very small quantities of water can pass through the pipe.
