ENHANCING CSO CAPTURE WITH REAL TIME CONTROL: ADDED BENEFITS FOR THE CITY OF OTTAWA'S COMBINED SEWER AREA MANAGEMENT PLAN
Abstract:The City of Ottawa has long suspected that the application of Real Time Control (RTC) could provide a significant improvement in the performance of regulators and storage facilities and their ability to consistently meet or enhance system CSO and surcharge protection objectives. The subject paper presents the results of a recent Real Time Control (RTC) feasibility study conducted for the City in order to address the last two points listed above. The feasibility study was commissioned with the objectives of assessing the effectiveness of various Real Time Control strategies and, with the determination of a preferred approach, the extent to which an RTC strategy could provide a more cost-effective means of achieving the combined sewer overflow control requirements as identified in the current City of Ottawa Combined Sewer Area Management Plan.
