Extreme storm events in combined sewer overflow analysis

T. G. Schmitt
The public awareness has related increased flooding events to climate change. The chance of more frequent extreme storm events would heavily affect urban drainage systems and their performance in terms of both urban flooding and pollution load discharges. The paper outlines CSO design and performance criteria for combined sewer systems. The significance of extreme storm events is further analysed applying long-term pollution load simulations for two urban catchments of different characteristics. Simulation results firstly illustrate...
