The report covers an evaluation of the laboratory and field results from the sampling of two combined sewage overflows representing 15% of the San Francisco's habitable area. The results of the study established mass discharge factors for many of the biological and chemical constituents of combined sewage. A major development of the study was a clearer understanding of the quantity of each constituent as related to time after start of storm. The information contained in the report will also be of significant interest to other communities with combined sewer systems.
