The project objective was to prove the concept of having a decision support tool(s) that enables the financial comparison to be made between removing infiltration from the sewer network and continuing to accept the flows, at a catchment-wide level. The tool was developed in two parts; technical and economic. The technical tool has been developed using a risk based methodology within InfoNet Software WHICH IS NECESSARY TO RUN THE TOOL. It assesses the pipe integrity and groundwater availability at every pipe in the sewer network and then distributes the 'Unaccounted for Flows' across the network according to these risk values. This enables identification of feasible intervention strategies that can be priced using the sconomic tool. The economic tool is based on monetary value and carbon footprint of alternative strategies. It calculates the Net Present Value, allowing direct comparisons. The tools developed have successfully proved the concept and provided the industry with an innovative method for future assessment of strategic infiltration scenarios.
