Accumulation-washout description in modelling event mean concentrations of COD in combined sewer overflow

M.Grum, P. Hallager, B.L. Jensen, K. K\303\246rgaard & J. J. Linde
During heavy rainfall combined sewer systems discharge nutrients, organic matter and other pollutants into the surrounding surface waters. Over the past 25 years efforts have been made to quantify pollutant loads discharged through combined sewer overflows based on various modelling approaches. Models assuming discharge loads to be the result of the mixing of surface runoff and the dry weather waste water flow miss some phenomena such as accumulation and subsequent washout. Other efforts incorporating a...
