Uncertainties related to extreme event statistics of sewer system surcharge and overflow

K. Schaarup-Jensen, C. Johansen & S. Thorndahl
Today it is common practice - in the major part of Europe - to base design of sewer systems in urban areas on recommended minimum values of flooding frequencies related to either pipe top level, basement level in buildings or level of road surfaces. Thus storm water runoff in sewer systems is only proceeding in an acceptable manner, if flooding of these levels is having an average return period bigger than a predefined value. This...
