Clearly this is not a corrosion situation never mind erosion. it was in January, the Turkey-TRNC water pipeline suffered a disruption due to severe weather conditions. Officials located the damage to be around 250 meters deep undersea and 8 kilometers (4.97 miles) near the Turkish coast. Two pipes detached from bases and surfaced on sea level as a result of the damage.

The pipe sections detached because something gave way, most likely those steel hawsers used to anchor them.

Erosion is different from corrosion. At sea you get both, that is why ships are hauled out, sand blasted and repainted under the waterline at regular intervals. Barnacles that settle on metal surfaces erode steel, so do electrolytic effects.

What about the UK company that sold the pipes? Where are they now?
