Abstract

This is a broad study of stormwater infiltration and inflow effects on two sewer systems with an equivalent size for comparison in Brevard County, Florida. The systems are Rockledge, which is located on the highest ground in the area, and Cocoa Beach, which is located down in the local water table. Rainfall data, sewage flow, quality, and flow rates were collected from the Brevard Public Health Department, Cocoa Beach and Rockledge sewage Plants, weather stations, and the Cocoa Water plant. The data indicated minimum, or no infiltration thru the Rockledge wastewater collection system. However, infiltration thru the Cocoa Beach system was estimated to be 3,800 gpd/in. dia./mi. Also, the sewage collected thru Rockledge and Cocoa Beach plants averaged about 50% and 160% of the water consumed respectively.
