The Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater Cincinnati (MSD) initiated and implemented the System Wide Model (SWM) project to develop and calibrate a computer model of the sewer system it operates, maintains, and improves. Sophisticated computer modeling tools were developed to enable model application for evaluation of various planning scenarios, including the use of real-time controls (RTC) within the system. The project was performed jointly by MSD and a nine-firm consultant team led by CDM. Consultant staff was co-located with MSD staff in a project office (see Appendix A for a description of the project team and office set-up). Both formal and informal training was provided to MSD staff to ensure the successful integration of the model into MSD operations.
