Sewer platforms represent a really major history in ecu towns. Their structural caliber and sensible potency are key parameters to assure the move of family and business wastewater to therapy vegetation with no infiltration nor exfiltration. Infiltration of groundwater is very unsafe to remedy plant potency, whereas exfiltration of wastewater can result in groundwater illness. the ecu study undertaking APUSS (Assessing infiltration and exfiltration at the functionality of city Sewer structures) used to be dedicated to sewer infiltration and exfiltration questions. It was once based in 3 major paintings components dealing respectively with i) the advance of recent dimension tools in line with tracer experiments and accounting for exact uncertainty analyses, ii) the implementation of types and software program instruments to combine structural and experimental info and to facilitate facts reveal, operational administration and decision-making methods and iii) the mixing of monetary and operational questions through fee estimation, monetary overview, functionality signs and multi-criteria tools utilized to investment/rehabilitation recommendations. This ultimate record describes the goals, tools and major effects for every paintings sector. References to distinctive equipment, protocols, studies and instruments are given during this ultimate record so one can be a useful resource of knowledge for all these serious about the functionality of city sewer structures.

METHODS FOR QUANTIFYING INFILTRATION AND EXFILTRATION FOR ONE PARTICULAR HC Measuring infiltration in drains is not an easy task for two reasons: – Infiltration flow-rates are low: a mean flowrate of only one litre/minute in individual drains would lead to a total of 50 or 100 m3/day/km when cumulated over a catchment, which is quite significant compared with infiltration into sewer lines; – Foul water is quite disturbing, as it displays sudden and strong variations of flow-rate, and conveys ‘‘big or gross solids’’.

This advice can be provided by the operator of the sewer system or by the staff of the community. A key point in lateral control is the follow-up. For instance, ‘‘sample’’ checks performed in sewer evaluation studies often lack efficiency, because no proper organisation is provided to file the result or for harassing reluctant owners. On the other hand, a systematic control, with follow-ups, advice, counter checks etc. is really efficient, but also needs procedures for checking the evolution of compliant laterals.
