Daily patterns of micro-organisms in the foul sewer system of Doncaster, United Kingdom

J. Rueedi, A.A. Cronin & B.L. Morris
Much is known about short-term changes in sewage volumes because they are often measured in pipeline design studies. Usually, sewage volumes peak in the morning and again in the evening, and leakage rates are expected to change correspondingly. To assess the contaminant load leaking into the subsurface, however, it is important to know the daily evolution of contaminant concentrations. These data are scarce, particularly for pathogenic micro-organisms. This study describes results of raw sewage sampling...
