Control and/or treatment of stormwater discharges and combined sewage overflows from urban areas are problems of increasing importance in the field of water quality management. Presented in this text are selected results of a comprehensive investigation and assessment of promising, completed and ongoing projects, representative of the state-of-the-art in abatement theory and technology; a look at recent legislation; and the identification of program needs and emphasis. Combined sewer overflows are major sources of water pollution problems, but even discharges of stormwater alone can seriously affect water quality. Current approaches involve control of overflows, treatment and combinations of the two. Control may involve maximizing treatment with existing facilities, control of infiltration and extraneous inflows, surface sanitation and management, as well as flow regulation and storage. A number of treatment methods have been evaluated including high rate screening and microstraining, ultra high rate filtration, dissolved air flotation, physical/chemical treatment, and modified biological processes.
