Abstract:

The deterioration of sanitary collection systems results in increased storm water and clear-water entering the system through inflow and infiltration (I&I). These systems are often not designed to handle the resulting wet weather flow rates caused by I&I. The effectiveness of improvements in sanitary infrastructure relating to I&I depends entirely on the ability to accurately forecast I&I response. Currently, there are no modeling tools available that specifically model I&I within sanitary collection systems. Thus, the ability to accurately forecast I&I response and make effective recommendations for sanitary collection system improvements is currently limited.
