Buried pipelines and steel structures passes or existed through different kind of sediments and saline water. This paper aims at optimize the best conditions to protect the buried pipelines from corrosive environments. Two ponds are selected for this study because of the big difference in chloride contents. The ponds were subjected to chemical, mineralogical, electrochemical analysis and the moisture content is also considered in this study. The results proved that mild steel is probably used in pond 1 at moisture content of 150% but in case of pond 4 mild steel is totally not recommended in all moisture content.
