Collection System Equalization Preserves Downstream Capacity
Abstract:The project solves a dilemma faced by many utilities in North Carolina experiencing rapid growth. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Utilities (Utilities) is able to service new growth and development without inundating their existing system. By storing peak flows upstream, downstream capacity is still available for existing downstream peak flows. This avoids costly system-wide expansion, stabilizes flows at the treatment plants, and reduces the risks of sanitary sewer overflows.
