WRcCSO - Rethinking the CSO for the 21st Century
Combined Storm Overflows (CSO) are a necessary evil in combined sewer networks to allow excess flow to spill during wet weather. However, spilling unsightly sewer debris to the environment is unacceptable. Traditional methods require screens to catch debris but require cleaning regularly.
