Abstract:

Washington D.C. has recently prepared a draft plan for controlling combined sewer overflows (CSOs). While the proposed plan will greatly reduce CSOs, it will not eliminate them under all conditions. EPA's CSO Policy, now part of the Clean Water Act, allows the review and revision, where appropriate, of water quality standards as part of CSO planning. This paper describes the District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority's (WASA's) proposed approach to incorporating wet weather provisions in the water quality standards.
