U.S. Combined Sewer Overflows: Correction Costs and Management Solutions

10 July 2017
Data Insight

Combined Sewer Systems serve approximately one quarter of the U.S. population. Stemming from increasing patterns of large weather events, combined sewer overflows (CSO) result in nearly 850 billion gallons of untreated waste and storm water annually.

Climate models predict a significant rise in heavy precipitation events across the U.S., particularly in the Northeast and Midwest, where a push towards implementation of long term CSO control plans are on the rise.

Municipalities are deploying solutions such as sewer system separation and off-site storage tanks. At the same time, Real Time Control (RTC) technology (e.g. smart water) and green infrastructure is on the rise to control CSO volumes without implementing large construction projects.

In this Data Insight, Bluefield water experts analyze:

  • The impact of Climate Change on CSOs
  • EPA Policies and Enforcement
  • Infrastructure Investments Needed
  • Advantages and Disadvantages of Common CSO Practices
  • Profiles of CSO Control Projects and Companies
