Abstract:

Inflow/Infiltration (I/I) continually impacts wastewater collection systems throughout the world. Several field-testing methods such as manhole inspections and smoke testing are used to locate and identify these I/I sources. How the defects are prioritized for repair is instrumental in a successful I/I reduction program. This paper will analyze the procedures used to rate the (I/I) defects located during the recent Sanitary Sewer Evaluation Studies (SSES) conducted in Carolina and Luquillo, Puerto Rico. The methods utilized to recommend and prioritize appropriate rehabilitation methods will also be presented. An explanation of these procedures and methods will assist collection system owners in addressing defects and repairs within their particular systems.
