The ALCOSAN Consent Decree (CD) entered on January 23, 2008 calls for the submittal of a Wet Weather Plan (WWP) to the regulatory agencies the United States Environmental Agency (USEPA), the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PaDEP), and the Allegheny County Health Department (ACHD) by January 30, 2013. The plan must propose technical alternatives to eliminate sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs), control combined sewer overflows (CSOs) such that applicable water quality standards are met, and to provide conveyance and treatment capacity for municipal flows within the ALCOSAN service area. The deadline for implementation of the WWP under the CD is September, 2026.

The Plan is being developed in coordination with ALCOSAN's diverse customer municipalities and under a complex regulatory framework involving Federal, state and county agencies. ALCOSAN adopted a flexible approach to wet weather planning that recognizes the competing spheres of interest that constitute its planning environment.
