HUNTING FOR WASTEWATER IN A D.C. STORM SEWER
Abstract:Residents living along Mill Creek in Washington D.C. reported nuisance odors and evidence of pollution in Mill Creek. The residents attributed these problems to contamination of the creek by sanitary wastewater discharges to a storm sewer. This paper describes the investigations conducted by the D.C. Water and Sewer Authority to identify whether sanitary discharges were occurring and to address residents' expectations on the nature of urban runoff.
