The rusted out conduit was a feeder the was outside of a commercial occupancy. It was run downward from a piullbox. I believe that the rain water found its way downward into the raceway. That conduit could not be relied upon as an equipment grounding conductor.

The switch shout where conduit nipples were used as fuses!
