Abstract/Summary The quality of field measurements in sewer systems relies on the spatial representativeness of the measurements. This study aims at field measurements of both velocity and total suspended solids (TSS) using a two dimensional sampler called Hydre. The device was implemented, tested and used in a sewer system for a range of hydraulic situations. This paper presents the principles of development and conception of the instrument. Analyses of the results demonstrate the ability of the device to provide robust TSS and velocity profiles in sewers for a range of flow conditions. L’évaluation des flux de polluants transitant dans les réseaux d’assainissement dépend notamment de la représentativité spatiale des mesures de vitesses et de concentrations en matières en suspension. Cette problématique a été étudiée expérimentalement par des mesures dans des réseaux urbains. Un échantillonneur bidimensionnel, appelé Hydre, a été développé et installé dans un collecteur. Il a permis d’étudier la répartition spatiale des vitesses et des concentrations pour une large gamme de contextes hydrauliques. Cet article présente la conception de cet échantillonneur. Les résultats sont présentés et discutés. Ils montrent la bonne homogénéité des concentrations dans la section mouillée.
