Assessing infiltration and exfiltration on the performance of urban sewer systems (APUSS)

Objective

Sewer systems constitute a very significant patrimony in European cities. Their structural quality and functional efficiency are key parameters to guarantee the transfer of domestic and trade wastewater to treatment plants without infiltration nor exfiltration. Infiltration of groundwater is particularly detrimental to treatment plant efficiency, while exfiltration of wastewater can lead to groundwater contamination. Both problems are critical on a long-term basis for sustainable urban water management. This research project, associating universities, SMEs and municipalities in 7 European countries, will develop new methods and techniques to assess and quantify infiltration and exfiltration in sewer systems. The methods will be tested and validated in different catchments. Associated models and tools will be proposed for scaling up and for application and end-user decision support.
