Abstract The study focused on the quantification of leakage of sanitary and industrial sewage from sanitary sewer pipes on a national basis. The method for estimating exfiltration amounts utilized groundwater table information to identify areas of the country where the hydraulic gradients of the sewage are typically positive, i.e., the sewage flow surface (within pipelines) is above the groundwater table. An examination of groundwater table elevations on a national basis reveals that the contiguous United States is comprised of groundwater regions (established by the U.S. Geological Survey) which are markedly different. Much of the northeastern, southeastern, and midwestern United States has relatively high groundwater tables that are higher than the sewage flow surface, resulting in inflow or infiltration. Conversely, a combination of relatively low groundwater tables and shallow sewers creates the potential for widespread exfiltration in communities located in the western United States. This report presents information on typical sewer systems, identifies and assesses the factors that cause or probably cause exfiltration, presents commonly used and advanced corrective measures and their costs for dealing with exfiltration, identifies technology gaps, and recommends associated research needs and priorities. This report also examines urban exfiltration, including a case study of Albuquerque, New Mexico.
