Abstract: Simulation and optimization techniques were employed in developing strategies for the operation of detention reservoirs for the control of combined sewer overflows. A single subbasin reservoir system in the San Francisco Plan for Wastewater Management was used as a case study. A simulation model was constructed and used in conjunction with both artificial and long-term historical rainfall data to develop and evaluate various general control strategies. It was demonstrated that control strategies can produce significant reductions in number and volume of overflows.
