The article “Expectation Analysis of the Probability of Failure for Water Supply Pipes” (*J. of Pipeline Systems Engr. and Practice*, May 2012: 36-46) proposed using the Poisson distribution to model the number of failures in pipelines of various types. Suppose that for cast-iron pipe of a particular length, the expected number of failures is 1 (very close to one of the cases considered in the article). Then *X*, the number of failures, has a Poisson distribution with μ = 1.
