English term or phrase: Breeches
As far as infrastructure is concerned, in developed world markets you find the use of transmission lines. These lines can be anything from five to 80 years old.They are typically made of old material, but even new material - such as concrete containing metal pipes - can corrode causing a multitude of problems.The age and type of material causes BREECHES in the system and results in cross contamination. In developing countries, the problem lies in a lack of infrastructure, which very regularly causes cross contamination of the system

tubo em forma de Y


Explanation:
TUBO EM FORMA DE Y ("Y-shaped tube)(fork-shaped tube) translates BREECHES TUBE, the only entry found in Michaelis Tech Multilingual Dictionary.
After Webster's 2nd edition, where BREECHES are a sort of baloon-shaped underwear, it might mean BOLSÕES (BIG POCKETS).

breech


Explanation:
"Breech" means something that has been broken into. Usually in a sense of something that shouldn't have, not authorized to. Therefore, in this case, I would suggest a translation to: "vazamento no sistema".

Sorry, the explanation I gave was for "breaches" also. The word is obviously misspelled.

falhas


Explanation:
Há um erro de grafia, claro. E acho que você deve usar falhas no sistema, não cabe brechas, nem fissuras, nada físico, porque é a interrupção do funcionamento dele.
