The Hydraulic and Hydrological Interactions Between Urban Sewer Systems and Receiving Waters at High Discharges

by Joachim Sartor, Univ of Kaiserslautern, Kaiserslautern, Germany,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Hydraulic Engineering


In the transition region from sewer to river, the penetration of river flood water into the sewer network or the hydraulic overload of small rivers due to sewer system discharges, may occur. Cost effective solutions for these problems are nearly impossible to determine because of the probability of the simultaneous occurance of sewer and river flood events can not be answered. The author describes the different natures of both flood events and presents a new method to determine their coincident probability.
