The effectiveness of selected microbial and chemical indicators to detect sewer leakage impacts on urban groundwater quality

A. Cronin, J. Rueedi & B. Morris
Sewer and stormwater pipe leakage can lead to the degradation of urban groundwater quality. This groundwater may be subsequently used for public water supply and so the resulting water treatment and public health consequences can be serious. To understand the impact of sewer exfiltration on groundwater quality, suitable indicators need to be sampled and analysed for. This study examined potential sewer-derived inorganic and microbial parameters in the UK city of Doncaster. Sulphite reducing clostridia, faecal...
