Learn more about EPA’s recently released “Greening CSO Plans: Planning and Modeling Green Infrastructure for Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) Control,” which will provide municipalities and sewer authorities with tools to help quantify green infrastructure contributions to a CSO control plan. Communities with combined sewers often view green infrastructure as an attractive way to reduce stormwater flows going into their sewer system, thus helping to reduce capital and operational costs at publicly owned treatment works.

Greening CSO Plans will help communities make cost-effective decisions ot maximize water quality benefits. This resource explains how to use modeling tools such as EPA’s Storm Water Management Model to optimize different combinations of grey and green infrastructure to reduce both sewer overflow volume and number of overflow events.
