Abstract:The City of Atlanta, as part of its ongoing Metro Atlanta Urban Watersheds Initiative (MAUWI), began in 1996 to investigate potential solutions to problems with combined sewer overflows (CSOs). While MAUWI was underway, the City entered into a consent agreement with the EPA and EPD, agreeing to take immediate, short-term corrective actions and to submit a plan showing how Atlanta would eliminate water quality violations from CSOs by July 2007. The CSO Remedial Measures Plan is part of a multi-billion dollar comprehensive Atlanta Wastewater System Improvements Program that also addresses Sanitary Sewer Overflow (SSOs), wastewater treatment plant operations and related appurtenances.
