Inflow and Infiltration Program

Wallingford, Connecticut

 Sewer Division - Inflow and Infiltration Removal Program

What’s Inside:

Inflow and Infiltration (I & I) are essentially clean water that enters into the sanitary sewer. This clean water takes up capacity in the sewer system, requires more cost to pump and treat, and can result in public health issues and property damage. I & I can come from public property sources such as leaky sewer mains in the street and from private property sources such as sump pump discharge piping connected to sewer service lines.

Town Ordinance No. 577 was adopted to address excessive I & I in the sanitary sewer system.

Town Ordinance No. 608 authorizes a Reimbursement Program to help property owners with the cost for removing private I & I.

To help identify inflow sources into the sanitary sewer system, the Sewer Division has developed an Inflow Questionnaire for property owners to fill out; click here for a copy of the Inflow Questionnaire.
