Impact-based integrated real-time control for improvement of the Dommel River water quality
The wastewater system of Eindhoven has been equipped with RTC control stations in the interceptor sewer since the early 1970s. The original volume-based RTC strategy aimed at maximizing the use of the in-sewer storage capacity and of the hydraulic capacity of the downstream WWTP. The water authorities now face receiving water problems related to intermittent discharges from CSOs and WWTP effluent, specifically dissolved oxygen depletion and ammonia peaks in the Dommel River. The combination of the availability of control structures and receiving water quality problems makes the Eindhoven case an ideal one to study the benefits of the most advanced application of RTC in urban wastewater systems: integrated impact-based RTC. This paper shows the results of the analysis of its potential for improvement of the water quality of the Dommel River.
