Failure of sewage pumps: statistical modelling and impact assessment

H. Korving, M. Geise & F. Clemens
Sewage pumping stations are directly responsible for affecting performance; i.e. failing pumps may result in combined sewer overflows or flooding. However, failures of sewage pumps are not yet incorporated in sewer assessments due to lack of knowledge and data. This paper presents the analysis of pump failure data provided by two sewer management authorities in The Netherlands. Pump failures have been studied accounting for the nature of the failures, the operation and maintenance procedures of...
