The research project ‘Real Time Control of a Combined Sewer System by Radar estimates of Precipitation’ seeks to improve the water quality of a stream by reducing quantitative and qualitative discharges of combined sewage overflow (CSO). The complex monitoring and simulation system that has been set up for control purposes is described. Two advanced real time control (ARTC) strategies have been developed. First a pollution based real time control (PBRTC) strategy, and second a water quality based real time control (WQBRTC) strategy. The PBRTC strategy is already implemented, the WQBRTC strategy will be implemented during the course of the project. For the PBRTC an off-line analysis is presented to show the effectiveness of the strategy.
