Overview

Combined Sewer Overflows (CSOs) have been directly implicated in the occurrence of drinking water contamination, algal blooms, beach closures, fishing bans, and sediment contamination. In addition to their human health and ecological impacts, CSOs can cause serious impairment to the aesthetics of receiving waters. Commissioned by the EPA, written by internationally recognized experts, and subjected to extensive peer review and revisions, Management of Combined Sewer Overflows provides authoritative coverage of CSO analysis and characterization of contaminants. It examines receiving water impacts, methods of control, regulations and compliance, system retrofits and upgrades, long-term CSO control plans, and research and design needs.
