Abstract:A disease with global implications is impacting wastewater collection systems. Commonly referred to as Infiltration/Inflow, this disease is also associated with Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSO's), bypasses, collapsed pipe, regulatory Administrative Orders (AO) and the more severe Consent Order (CO). This paper presents how the disease can be diagnosed and treated effectively using new testing and surgical procedures. A case study of a patient is presented which will detail the laboratory testing results; summarize the disease diagnosis, present treatment alternatives, show results and prognosis. Since this disease is commonly misdiagnosed, this paper will present detailed summaries of typical symptoms and photographs of various patients in various stages of the disease.
