Increasing concern about the impact of storm sewage on wastewater treatment works (WwTWs) and receiving water bodies has encouraged the development of dynamic models of WwTWs in order to investigate the more transient effects. One such model was employed to study the behaviour of storm tanks and primary clarifiers during closely spaced sequences of storm events. In all, eight plausible events were synthesized by combining two representative single storm events using several criteria. The characteristics of the storm events simulated included flow, suspended solids (SS), volatile suspended solids (VSS), chemical oxygen demand (COD) and ammonium-nitrogen. These were evaluated for the storm tank overflow; the storm tank return pumping; and the primary clarifier influent and effluent streams.
