Get Real! Implementing Real-time Control Schemes Offers Combined Sewer Overflow Control For Complex Urban Collection System (EPA/600/JA-01/027) 2001
Combined sewer overflows (CSOs) are a significant source of pollution in receiving waters. The volume and number of CSOs can be reduced by using real-time control, which operates automatic regulators more efficiently to maximize a collection system's storage, treatment, and transport capacities.
Real-time control schemes are being used to manage complex urban collection systems around the world. A demonstration was conducted in Canada for the Quebec Urban Community (QUC) collection system. Funded by EPA to assess the use of real-time control schemes, the QUC study evaluated the effectiveness of three schemes in managing CSOs.
