Implementation of Edmonton's Combined Sewer Overflow Control Strategy
In 1994 the City of Edmonton began a program to reduce the impact of the combined sewer system on the river. Planning efforts up to 1998 led to the development of a $150 million capital upgrading program to be completed by 2020. The program’s capital works are now largely complete, and this presentation provides an outline of those completed works and also some results to demonstrate their effectiveness.
