Rainfall-derived inflow and infiltration
Infiltration water processing costs are significant for any waste water utility. As infiltration water is dependent on weather conditions, the amount of water requiring processing is unpredictable, as is the strain that will be imposed on the network and its components.
- Reduce pump and waste water treatment operating and energy costs
- Minimise the need for network and treatment plant expansion to handle floods and climate change
- Prioritise different renovation scenarios based on knowledge of areas that are at high risk of inflow and infiltration water.
By combining groundwater level calculations with knowledge of the network condition, the analysis allows you to localise areas with a high risk of infiltration water.
