Plumbing the Quality of a Sewer System
Consultants in Phoenix were recently charged with assessing the city's sewer system, many feet of which were laid without plastic lining to protect them. Developing a capital...

Treatment of Wet Weather Discharges in Columbus, Georgia
The City of Columbus, Georgia and the Columbus Water Works (CWW) instigated a combined sewer overflow (CS 0) control program to protect the Chattahoochee River against adverse impacts...

Mitigation of Predation at a Juvenile Bypass Outfall Site
Reducing predation at an outfall has become an increasingly important consideration in the design of a juvenile salmonid bypass system. To minimize the exposure juveniles have with predators...

CSO Planning Model Development and Verification Strategy
A model verification technique is described that uses modeled and monitored overflow occurrences defined in terms of the same long-term frequency statistics that are used to evaluate CSO...

Indianapolis Uses New Radar Technology to Refine Hyetographs for CSO Model and SSES Studies
Indianapolis is the first city in the country to install the French-developed technology designed by urban hydrologists to accurately measure rainfall between rain gauges. Installed in...

The Integration of Receiving Water Impacts in the Evaluation Process of Alternative Designs for CSO Abatement in Providence, RI
The Providence, Rhode Island sewer system is undergoing a combined sewer overflow abatement program. One measure of the program's effectiveness is the reduction of water quality...

Sanitary Sewer System Modeling Model Comparison Racine, Wisconsin
As the use of computers continues to increase within the engineering profession, hydraulic computer models are used to simulate major interceptors and sometimes the entire sewer system....

A GIS Sewer Database for a University Campus
The development of a geographic information system (GIS) based sewer network database for the Purdue University campus in West Lafayette, Indiana, is discussed in this paper. The database,...

Retention-Tank Systems: A Unique Operating Practice for Managing Complex Waste Streams at Research and Development Facilities
The importance of preventing the introduction of prohibited contaminants to the sanitary sewer is critical to the management of large federal facilities such as the Lawrence Livermore...

Modeling SSO's Resulting from Peak Conditions
Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (MDWASD) is undertaking the installation and maintenance of a computerized collection and transmission model and peak flow management study. Through...

External Inspection of an Ocean Outfall
In October and December, 1994, an external inspection was performed on the County Sanitation Districts of Orange County's (Districts) ocean outfall. This presentation describes...

A Stormwater Management Plan
Part 2 of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Stormwater Permit requires both sampling and analysis of stormwater and the control of illicit discharges to stormwater...

Design Alternatives for Protection of the Santa Ana River Interceptor Sewer
The Santa Ana River Interceptor Sewer (SARIS) line buried within the floodplain of the Santa Aria River is being threatened by long term degradation of the river bed at the pipeline crossings,...

Water Quality Modeling of the Rouge River Watershed
A relatively detailed modeling framework for calculating pollution flows and loads to the Rouge River has been developed and tested successfully. The framework includes consideration of...

Preparation of Notification Models Using Continuous Modeling Techniques
Public health departments in many states now require that operators of collection systems notify them of discharges from combined sewer systems soon after these events occur. This allows...

A New Strategic Management of Pumping Station in Sewer Systems
Pumping stations are literally the heart of most sewer system operations and sewage treatment plant processes. Current studies show that a small improvement of pump efficiency will offer...

Volunteer Organizations Use of Appropriate Technology in Developing Countries
The water and sanitation needs facing developing countries are formidable. This paper discusses the experience of a volunteer organization, the Water and Sanitation Consultancy Group,...

Comparison of Worst-Case and Probabilistic Approaches to Ocean Outfall Mixing Zone Analysis
Two approaches have been used for ocean outfall mixing zone analysis: worst-case approach and probabilistic approach. This paper discusses some advantages and disadvantages of the worst-case...
