Alternatives employing sewer flushing were developed for the Dorchester area of Boston and their cost effectiveness compared with the decentralized combined sewer overflow (CSO) storage/treatment and disinfection facilities proposed as Eastern Massachusetts Metropolitan Area (EMMA) Alternative 1. Thirty-three alternatives were evaluated. These alternatives included sewer flushing, off-line storage, in-pipe storage, storage/treatment facilities, and a combination of the above. A study objective was to determine if additional expenditures to develop sewer flushing techniques and devices were indeed appropriate. Continuous simulation runs using 16 years (1960-1975) of hourly rainfall data from May through November were made to determine the level of CSO pollution control obtained.
