Systemized Approach to Infiltration/Inflow Analysis
Author: Jack Warburton
Date: 11/77
Prepared for Pacific Northwest Pollution Control Association 44th Annual Conference, November 3, 1977

The purpose of the Phase 1 infiltration/inflow analysis is to determine by a "desk-top" analysis approach that the infiltration/inflow entering a collection system is not excessive. Excessive infiltration/inflow is defined as that portion of infiltration/inflow that can be eliminated by sewer system rehabilitation at a cost less than that required for its transport and treatment.
