||This research project was initiated with the overall objective of determining the ability of the Hydro Brake flow control device, in conjunction with off-line underground storage, to limit the rate of stormwater flow into combined sewers. The intended result of this control was the reductions of overflows and street and basement flooding during storm events. Three underground corrugated metal pipe storage tanks were constructed and outfitted with Hydro Brakes of different flow rates. The storage tanks were filled, and their rates of discharge were measured to establish discharge curves for the Hydro Brakes. The Hydro Brakes were then monitored for performance during actual storm events. Homeowner surveys were also undertaken to evaluate the effects of the Hydro Brake/storage installations on flooding.
