Presented at Pipeline Rehabilitation Symposium, University of Leuvan, Belgium, December 1986

In any exercise to improve efficiency, the greatest opportunities for savings will usually be in areas where maximum expenditure is incurred.

Of this, about 80% relates directly to upgrading the performance of existing sewer systems, i.e. sewerage rehabilitation; the remainder relating to new works and other areas (Figure 2).
