CASE STUDY: PROCESS FOR EVALUATING CSO CONTROL ABATEMENT ALTERNATIVES
Abstract:The Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District's (NEORSD) Easterly Sewerage District includes approximately 15,000 acres of combined sewershed area. The system includes 31 combined sewer overflows (CSO) and 271 regulators. A CSO facilities planning study was initiated in January, 1998 to develop a long-term control plan (LTCP) that would establish the framework for bringing the District into compliance with EPA's CSO Control Policy. A systematic and comprehensive approach was developed and implemented for the evaluation of the CSO control alternatives. This evaluation process goes beyond the traditional cost-benefit analysis, considering both the cost and the non-cost issues that were deemed important by the project stakeholders.
