Among the alternatives for reducing combined sewer overflows (CSO) pollution are several proposals to mandate a uniform national technology-based standard for all municipal combined sewer systems (CSSs). A common element of many of these proposals is a requirement that all CSSs provide sufficient storage and/or treatment capacity to prevent the discharge of untreated wastewater under most wet weather conditions. The purpose of the report is twofold. Its first objective is to provide basic information on the number, location, and other characteristics of CSSs, to describe in general terms the adverse impacts of CSOs, and to summarize the current regulatory status of CSOs. The report's second objective is to help illuminate the debate over CSO control by (1) defining alternative regulatory approaches for setting a wet weather design standard, (2) examining relationships between the different standards, and (3) evaluating the potential advantages and disadvantages of each approach.
