The operation of three storm standby tanks contiguous to an intercepting sewer which serves both combined sewers and sanitary sewers was investigated to determine the effectiveness of the tanks in improving the quality of the waste water prior to its discharge into the river. Based on influent and effluent sampling data collected during the study period, storm standby tank facilities reduce significantly concentration of the solids and B.O.D. in the waste water in storm runoff periods. The extent of reduction is dependent to a major degree on the detention time of flow passing through the tanks. Improvement of dissolved oxygen resulting from passage of waste water through the tanks is very substantial, especially during periods when the dissolved oxygen content of the influent is low.
