This report describes the evaluation of two fluidic combined sewer regulators operated by the city of Philadelphia Water Department under typical municipal service conditions. The smaller unit provided much better hydraulic regulation performance than the conventional static regulator it replaced, approaching that of a complex, dynamic regulator. The larger unit demonstrated a similar performance potential which was not practicably achieved because of unforeseen, heavy infiltration in the connecting sewer. Considering both hydraulic performance and costs, the fluidic regulator was considered to offer greater cost effectiveness than either conventional static or dynamic combined sewer regulators.
