The objective of this study was to determine the feasibility, effectiveness, and economics of employing high-rate, fine-mesh screening for primary treatment of storm water overflow from combined sewer systems. The final form of the screening unit stands 63 inches high and has an outside diameter of 80 inches. The unit is fed by an 8-inch pipe carrying 1700 gpm (122 gal/min/sq ft) which is distributed to a 60-inch diameter rotating (60 rpm) stainless steel collar screen having 14 square feet of available screen area and a 165 mesh (105 micron opening, 47.1 percent open area). The screen is backwashed at the rate of 0.235 gallons of backwash water per 1000 gallons of applied sewage. Based on final performance tests run on dry-weather sewage, the unit is capable of 99 percent removal of floatable and settleable solids, 34 percent removal of total suspended solids and 27 percent removal of COD. The screened effluent is typically 92 percent of the influent flow. On the basis of a scale-up design of a 25 mgd screening facility, the estimated cost of treatment is 22 cents/1000 gallons.
