Abstract: This paper presents the findings of several critical studies that the project team is conducting to evaluate the feasibility and long-term viability of using decentralized controls for CSO management. The project team has developed a substantial set of analysis tools for use in the development of modeling and monitoring programs, including proposed classification schemes for decentralized controls and descriptions of unit processes. The study also provides guidance on determining the feasibility and effectiveness of controls, including an analysis of optimization, cost, and techniques to manage runoff volume, peak discharge rate, and water quality. Regional case studies on strategies, costs, and maintenance practices are presented.
