Quantification of sewer exfiltration - a review

M. Rutsch, J. Rieckermann & P. Krebs
One of the goals of the APUSS project (Assessing Infiltration and Exfiltration on the Performance of Urban Sewer Systems) is to assess sewer exfiltration, in order to support cities and operators to define problem-oriented rehabilitation strategies.
