ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the factors to be considered in discharging stormwater to publicly owned sanitary sewer system in the U.S. It states that the ability of conveyance system to handle additional flow from industrial stormwater must be considered. In addition, the capacity of the treatment system to handle additional flow must be measured. Moreover, industry must be identified if it can provide adequate safeguards to protect publicly owned treatment works (POTWs) infrastructure.
