Ingress location & quantification

Infiltration into sewers, typically by ground water or by sea water ingress, leads to over capacity issues within the sewer network. This often results in sewer flooding and sewer spills.

What we do

WRc and Electroscan Inc. our technology partners are the industry leaders for sewer infiltration surveys in the UK. Our experienced field engineers have located infiltration sources for Thames Water, Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water and Southern Water using our non-disruptive conductivity inspection technology.

We work in partnership with water companies to accurately pinpoint and quantify infiltration sources on their gravity sewer networks. This is completed throughout the year and is not reliant on high groundwater levels.

In addition, our in-house team is able to integrate asset information and fault history into a customer’s existing GIS platform.

  • Accurate infiltration source detection and location.
  • Quantification of infiltration by individual defect and by sewer length to enable cost effective repairs.
  • GIS and mapping services
