Using decision analysis to determine optimal experimental design for monitoring sewer exfiltration with tracers

J. Rieckermann, M. E. Borsuk & W. Gujer
The tracer methods developed to assess exfiltration from sewers in the European project APUSS (Assessment of the Performance of Sewer Systems) have a high degree of freedom with regard to the choice of tracer and the dosing strategy. These can lead to very different degrees of uncertainty in the measured exfiltration ratio. In this study, we demonstrate how to select an optimal experimental design using decision analysis, which accounts for this uncertainty and its associated...
