Abstract: A 37 mile pipeline which consists of sections of 114 inch, 96 inch and 66 inch pipes was constructed for delivering secondary sewage effluents for power plant makeup. During initial operations, several unexpected transient events occurred. Field testing was performed and the results were analyzed to identify the causes of these events. The experience gained is presented.
