  1. Methods for assessing the public health impact of outflows from combined sewer systems.

    Article - En anglais

    Approximately 1,100 communities in the United States have combined sewer and stormwater systems whose capacity may be exceeded during moderate or heavy rainfall.

    Outflows may occur that can deposit water with varying concentrations of the components of sewage onto public areas, where contact with residents or workers is possible, potentially resulting in a range of adverse health effects.

    This study proposes and applies three analytic methods to evaluate the impact of such outflows on public health.
