As municipal wastewater treatment is upgraded, discharges of urban stormwater and combined sewer overflows are emerging as significant sources of surface water pollution. If the pollution aspect of urban runoff is considered in the planning of stormwater systems, quality management can often be incorporated in the flood control strategies. However, in many cases we must deal with pollution discharges from existing sewer systems. The possibilities of quality management in such cases will be heavily restricted, especially in densely populated areas where it sometimes can be very hard to find cost-effective solutions to the pollution problem.
