Modelling tidal effects in catchments with large variable tidal infiltration

A. Sharpe, I.T. Clifforde & P. Martin
This paper describes a project to find a cost effective way of reducing storm overflow spill frequency to an acceptable level on a combined sewer system experiencing excessive tidal infiltration. Tidal infiltration reduction works had already been carried out, but infiltration remained high. Normally, where variable tidal infiltration is present but does not comprise a significant fraction of the flow in the sewer, an allowance can be made assuming a constant inflow equal to the...
