Discover the Editor's Choice: From each issue of the leading journal Water Science & Technology the core team of editors select one outstanding paper to share across IWA Publishing platforms.
IWA Publishing is pleased to announce that the 43rd Editor's Choice Paper, chosen by Jo Burgess, is now Open Access:
Analysing consequences of infiltration and inflow water (I/I-water) using cost-benefit analyses
Kristin Jenssen Sola, Jarle T. Bjerkholt, Oddvar G. Lindholm and Harsha Ratnaweera
Why was this paper chosen?
Sewer overflows are problematic in all countries where waterborne sanitation is practised. It frequently goes unaddressed as it is difficult to justify expenditure from limited budgets for problems that are complicated to explain and quantify. This paper paves the way for realistic costing of interventions that protect natural capital, and provides a way to justify and drive responsible behaviours on the part of municipalities and city councils.
