Sewage Utility Company Creates a Roadmap for a Safer & Simpler CSO Solution

Download CSO Case Study Here

The Mon Valley region of southwestern Pennsylvania has been hit hard in recent years by the downturn of the steel industry, and the local community of just 5,500 households struggled to recover. 

That’s why people took notice when the Mon Valley Sewage Authority pledged nearly $50 million to update or eliminate its combined sewer overflows (CSOs), improve water quality and stay ahead of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mandates.

The results? A Combined Sewer Overflow Long Term Control Plan, which will capture an average of 85% of the flow that enters the combined system during precipitation each year. The Accu-Tab® Chlorination and CleanSlate® Dechlorination Systems play a leading role in treating the captured run-off water before discharge back into the water table.

This case study examines the reasons behind Mon Valley’s decision to stay ahead of state and federal mandates, as well as what went into its decision to select the Accu-Tab and CleanSlate Systems, including:

  • The safety, simplicity and cost benefits of Accu-Tab and CleanSlate systems over alternatives such as UV treatment, sodium hypochlorite and chlorine gas

  • How the Sewage Authority worked in tandem with their consulting engineers at Wade Trim to help ensure the best results for the river and community

  • The importance of staying ahead of EPA mandates with long-term investment in CSO upgrades
