Groundwater Infiltration Solutions

Danaher & Walsh APS is able to offer solutions to deal with groundwater infiltration into sewerage systems.

Where a sewer pipeline has become cracked or broken or a joint is defective, local groundwater can infiltrate the pipeline.

This can cause a number of issues. The excess water may cause a sewer to exceed its design capacity, leading to overflows. Where pumping is used, this excess volume of water may cause pumps to run far in excess of their designed operational times. 

The excess water will also cause a dilution of the sewage and an increase in the volume passing to sewage treatment, leading to inefficiencies.

Where groundwater infiltration is suspected Danaher & Walsh APS can carry out full, comprehensive inspections to isolate the root cause of the infiltration and suggest the most suitable and cost-effective repair method to be used.
