A feasibility study was conducted of a large stabilization-retention basin to be constructed in Lake Erie at Cleveland, Ohio. The stabilization is viewed as a possible alternative to separation of a combined sewer system. The proposed basin would treat flows from a number of large combined sewer overflows, from several polluted streams, and effluent from a large secondary wastewater treatment plant. Treatment would consist of bio-oxidation, sedimentation, stabilization and disinfection. The chemical, biological, physical and structural aspects of the proposed basin were studied, and the probable benefits to water quality and the effectiveness of the basin as a treatment device were evaluated. Estimates of cost of the basin and collection system were prepared, and it was concluded that the stabilization basin would provide a higher degree of pollution abatement than would separation of sanitary and storm sewers, at about one-third the cost.
