The paper presents a short description of soil clogging processes during sewage infiltration as well as a simple theoretical model of sand clogging by suspended solids. The Kozeny-Carman equation was used to investigate the influence of the decreasing porosity due to clogging on the sand permeability. A comparison of the results obtained using the derived theoretical relationships with empirical data showed an acceptable agreement.
