Low-impact inflow/infiltration investigation

Six Micromonitors placed throughout 4.7 miles of sanitary sewer showed significant inflow and infiltration was limited to two of six sub-basins. As a result, Clayton County Water Authority managers limited investigative efforts to homes only within those areas. Photo: Stantec

A Micromonitor is ready to be installed. An early concept for the device was developed by David Saylor, president of Indiana's South Haven Utilities Water Works. Photos: Stantec
