Innovative tracer methods for infiltration monitoring

O. Kracht, M. Gresch & W. Gujer
Two innovative tracer methods for the quantification of parasitic discharge in sewers have been proposed as routine applications within the scope of the European research project APUSS (Assessing Infiltration and Exfiltration on the Performance of Urban Sewer Systems). In order to improve the accuracy of wastewater hydrograph separation compared to conventional practice, the novel approaches are using intrinsic physicochemical characteristics (stable isotopes, pollutographs) of the wastewater as a natural tracer for the differentiation of its...
