Influence of pressure main pumping frequency on sulfide formation rates in sanitary sewers

Abstract Reductions to hydraulic flows in sewer networks resulting from water conservation and re-use strategies will change the operational behaviours of our existing sewer infrastructure. For intermittently flowing pressure mains, changes to the duration and frequency of pumping events effect…

Modelling the long-term effect of wastewater compositions on maximum sulfide and methane production rates of sewer biofilm

Abstract Reliable modelling of sulfide and methane production in sewer systems is required for efficient sewer emission management. Wastewater compositions affect sulfide and methane production kinetics through both its short-term variation influencing the substrate availability to sewer biofilms, and its…
