Short description: Within the European project APUSS (Assessing infiltration and exfiltration on the performance of urban sewer systems) a model is developed which allows the estimation of infiltration and exfiltration of an urban catchment and which is supported and accompanied by software development and application. Thus, a data driven model ought to be developed using the approach “similar pipe characteristics lead to similar infiltration rates”, i.e. similarities between groups of pipes or sub-catchments are used to transfer available information on infiltration. In this paper, general rules for data acquisition (as first step of modelling) as well as results of a parameter reduction are introduced.
