The Metropolitan Water Intelligence System (MWIS) Concept is being developed with the objective of providing automatic operational control for metropolitan water systems. The initial study was an investigation into the specific problem of controlling overflows from combined sewer systems in order to reduce this source of receiving water pollution. The technical and nontechnical aspects of the problem discussed include: the initiation of a Real-Time Automation and Control System (RTACS) by means of a simulation model for use in the design of the components of the RTACS, the initial criteria for use in the development and operation of an RTACS, and the technical and nontechnical feasibility of an RTACS for combined sewer systems and possible further application to overall urban water systems.
