Infiltration and inflow (I/I) describe how stormwater (inflow) and groundwater (infiltration) enter the sanitary sewer system through undesirable cracked pipes, faulty manholes, or sometimes old illegal connections.

Akel Engineering Group is adept at developing a systematic approach at identifying sanitation system I/I, and developing mitigation measures for reducing these undesired components.

Our approach is based on developing accurate hydraulic models, implementing a dry and wet weather flow monitoring programs, calibrating the hydraulic models, and developing plans to mitigate the I/I in identified sewer basins.

Akel Engineering Group’s focused approach includes developing a multi-year plan chasing the I/I within the high contributor basins, and recommending a pipeline renewal and replacement plan that will reduce flows and minimize capital budget expenditures.
