The City of Milwaukee evaluated the merits of detention tanks as a practical method for abatement of combined sewer overflow pollutional discharges from urban areas. A 3.9 million gallon combined sewer overflow detention tank was constructed to intercept overflow from a 570 acre segment of the City's combined sewer area. As part of the evaluation program, an extensive sewer and river monitoring program was conducted, using eleven automated monitoring stations. The monitoring program provided data used with a mathematical detention tank model to evaluate performance of the project detention tank and provides a basis for other design and planning situations. Based upon approximately five years of data and modeling studies, detention tanks were shown to be effective in preventing a large portion of the contaminants found in combined sewer overflow from entering receiving waters. General information and methods for sizing and estimating costs of detention tanks for other areas have been developed.
