Assessing the impact of infiltration and exfiltration in sewer systems using performance indicators: case studies of the APUSS project

M.A. Cardoso, V. Prigiobbe, M. Giulianelli, E. Baer, J. De B\303\251n\303\251dittis & S.T. Coelho
The structural quality and functional efficiency of sewer systems are key parameters to guarantee the transfer of domestic, commercial and industrial wastewater to treatment plants without infiltration nor exfiltration. Infiltration of groundwater is particularly detrimental to treatment plant efficiency, while exfiltration of wastewater can lead to groundwater contamination. The APUSS project associating universities, SMEs and municipalities in 7 European countries, developed new methods and techniques to assess and quantify infiltration and exfiltration (I/E) in sewer...
