Policy makers and managers are forced to deal with increasingly complex problems related to combined sewer systems. Alternatives for the solution of this complex water problem are needed. The alternative considered here is computer based control of combined sewer flow. The possibilities for control of separated systems are implied. Computer based control is but one of several recognized solutions. Its potential relative to other alternatives for reducing overflows is dependent on each particular situation and must be determined in a systematic evaluation process. The reduction or elimination of overflow is the major problem or objective. Efforts by the municipalities of metropolitan Seattle, Detroit, Minneapolis-Saint Paul and San Francisco are examined in detail. On the basis of these studies, the potential advantages and disadvantages of computer based supervisory or automatic control of combined sewer systems are discussed.
