Abstract: The Massachusetts Water Resource Authority (MWRA), an agency created by the Massachusetts legislature to provide wholesale water and sewer services to the metropolitan Boston areea, is starting to prepare a master plan for sewer services for its Northern Service territory. This area includes approximately 23 cities and towns. A major need of the project is to develop estimates of present and projected average daily sewerage flows from residential and industrial-commercial-institutional (ICI) users entering the MWRA's interceptors from these connection points. Discussed in this paper is the methodology being used for this and its benefits.
