Abstract:

One of the most cost-effective ways for a community to reduce its flows and associated assessments is to reduce infiltration and inflow (I/I). Stoneham implemented an innovative, 3- Step approach to identifying and removing I/I from its system. The recurring program consists of: 1) utilizing a high powered, digital zoom camera to quickly and cost-effectively identify the “worst” sections of its system; 2) conducting in-line, closed circuit television (CCTV) inspection of the worst sections; and 3) completing a three-year, publicly-bid rehabilitation construction contract. At the conclusion of the first three-year, work order construction contract, Stoneham's flow reductions were the greatest amongst the 43 member communities served by the Massachusetts Water Resource Authority (MWRA). Its associated cost savings have also been the greatest.
