This 8 hour course will discuss the SSO solutions that could be implemented to control or eliminate SSOs. Several examples are given in the text that explains how particular SSOs were addressed. This course will provide useful information to determine the proper route to take to control SSOs.
This course can be used by anyone with an interest in environmental, transportation engineering, or geotechnical engineering. This course is also perfect for anyone that would like to know more information regarding SSOs and how they can have an effect on their communities. After reading this course the student will know the basic information regarding controlling and eliminating SSOs.
The course materials are based solely on the Environmental Protection Agency document “Sanitary Sewer Overflow Solutions” as found on the website of the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency.
