The Syracuse demonstration program was designed to evaluate high-rate disinfection/treatment of Combined Sewer Overflows. The study covered field evaluations of high-rate treatment and disinfection by the following unit processes: three separate microscreening devices, swirl regulator/concentrator, and disinfection utilizing chlorine and chlorine dioxide. The three microscreening units were evaluated employing various hydraulic loading rates. Using multiple regression analysis techniques, mathematical performance models were developed for each unit relating suspended solids removal efficiencies to hydraulic and solid loading rates, and the results are presented in the reports. Similarly, performance models were developed for the treatment efficiency of the swirl regulator/concentrator and are reported. Capital and operating cost estimates indicated that solids removal via swirl regulation/concentration followed by disinfection by chlorine was the least expensive.
