A NEW SPIN ON CSO CONTROL: OPTIMIZING REGULATOR CONTROL WITH VORTEX VALVES
The use of flow control devices for optimizing CSO regulator performance can be considered in areas where storage of flow either in the existing infrastructure or in new infrastructure is not possible due to conditions including steep grades and/or economic limitations. The use of flow control devices allows for the reduction or elimination of CSO discharges during smaller storms (i.e. storms that occur in the typical rainfall year) while preventing system overloading and unacceptable hydraulic grade lines during larger storms. This paper presents the use of flow control devices, specifically vortex valves, for the reduction of CSO discharges and control of hydraulic grade lines along the Mill River in the City of Springfield, MA.
