  • Monitoring of Combined Sewer Overflows (MONITOR)

    Supporting the integrated water resources management in urban areas

    Increasingly, in urban water resource management the consideration of stormwater impacts on water resources gains in importance. Among stormwater discharges the impact from combined sewer overflows (CSO) plays a prominent role. The dynamic character of the discharge events lead to particular stress on the water bodies. The project MONITOR-1 covers the preparation of a concept for combined sewer overflow (CSO) monitoring in Berlin. The monitoring itself shall be conducted from…
