Combined Sewer Overflows
The combined sewer system is designed to collect water from storm events as well as normal sewage in the same pipe. The combined sewer system transports all of the sewage to the City's Wastewater Treatment Plant, where it is treated and then discharged to the Mad River. However, sometimes during large rain storms or when the snow melts, the volume of sewage in the combined sewer system will exceed the capacity of the treatment plant. When this occurs, the combined sewer system is designed to overflow and discharge excess wastewater directly into the Mad River and at various points along Buck Creek and its tributaries.
These overflows are called combined sewer overflows (CSOs). At each discharge point along the Mad River, Buck Creek and the tributaries to Buck Creek, there are informational signs describing the overflow. Click here for a list of CSO's in Springfield.
