The requirement to screen the discharges from combined sewer overflows (CSOs), sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs) and municipal separate storm sewer systems (MS4s) is becoming more pressing as implementation of current and proposed wet-weather pollution-abatement regulations occurs. This paper reviews available wet-weather screening technologies with regards to a number of design and operational factors. Netting systems are also included.

Applications of wet-weather screens include (1) preliminary treatment upstream of storage tanks or other downstream processes, (2) end-of-pipe treatment for the control of floatable solids and (3) more advanced treatment for the removal of conventional pollutants.
