Abstract: Quantification of the oxygen fluxes in the sewer system is at present the optimal methodology to obtain information about the influence of sewers on transformations and mass balances in the urban drainage system. However, the relative and absolute values of these fluxes are practically unknown. In this work, the oxygen fluxes were quantified experimentally in a full-scale aerobic main sewer. The sewer biofilm respiration was determined with an in situ flow cell, a method that has not been used before in the se…
