Monitoring of combined sewer overflow tanks: Results of 500 years of measurement records

G. Weiss, H. Brombach & C. W\303\266hrle
In Germany, today about 24,000 combined sewer overflow tanks (CSO tanks) are in operation. For their dimensioning and design, German standards are available and respected. However, efficiency and performance of these costly structures are usually not known by the operator nor by the local water authority. Thus, a trend towards monitoring the overflow activity is observed. This paper points out the state-of-the-art in CSO overflow monitoring. Basic features of water level measurement as well as...
