Decentralized stormwater controls provide a significant and
promising alternative strategy to limit the number of overflows
from combined sewer systems. This research evaluates the functional
processes employed by decentralized controls and possible methods
of quantifying stormwater retention and detention mechanisms. Pilot
installations and modeling are demonstrating significant reductions
in runoff volumes especially when targeted at problematic catchment
areas of the collection system. The technical considerations and
perceived impediments of urban retrofits are analyzed and a
methodology for modeling effectiveness is outlined. The
comprehensive benefits gained from decentralized controls, in
addition to stormwater volume reductions, are also presented. The
results of this research provide a framework for communities to
begin implementing decentralized controls as a component of a
combined sewer inflow reduction program. Analytical assessments of
categorical controls are provided to aid in the selection of
appropriate decentralized techniques and strategies. This report is
available only as a pay-per-view item.
