Impact of Proper Maintenance of Combined Sewer Overflow System on Flooding in the City of Camden
This fact sheet was prepared by the Jersey Water Works Best Practices Committee. It summarizes a case study performed by CDM Smith, an engineering firm, and commissioned by the Camden County Municipal Utilities Authority. The Impact of Proper Maintenance of Combined Sewer Overflow System on Flooding in the City of Camden was predicted by modeling Camden’s combined sewer system (CSS) and measuring the changes in the volume of stormwater conveyed to water pollution control facilities (WPCFs), combined-sewer overflows (CSOs), and flooding in the City of Camden as a result of cleaning pipelines and removing build-ups of silt and debris.
