Laboratory experiments for predicting clogging in stormwater infiltration systems

N.R. Siriwardene, B. E. Hatt, A. Deletic & T. D. Fletcher
Infiltration systems divert urban stormwater away from the surface runoff path, acting to temporarily store and then infiltrate it into the surrounding soils. However, these systems have a very high failure rate due to clogging. Research is being conducted at Monash University to develop a fundamental understanding of clogging processes and to develop a new clogging prediction method for stormwater infiltration systems. This paper presents the method and results of the preliminary experiments carried out...
