What Does Close Interval Survey (CIS) Mean?

A close interval survey is a measurement tool used to examine cathodic protection systems attached to pipelines to ensure adherence to inspection codes and standards. The survey is complete by obtaining voltage measurements at fixed time intervals and pipeline length in reference to an existing grounded electrode.
