Report to Congress: Impacts and Control of CSOs and SSOs

This report was delivered to Congress on Thursday, August 26, 2004. The Report presents a comprehensive characterization of CSOs and SSOs, including the extent of environmental and human health impacts caused by CSOs and SSOs, the technologies used by municipalities to address these impacts, and the resources spent by municipalities to control CSO and SSO discharges. The Report finds that the occurrence of CSOs and SSOs is widespread, and that CSOs and SSOs cause or contribute to environmental and human health impacts. Further, the Report finds that there are many existing structural and non-structural technologies that are well-suited for CSO and SSO control (EPA 833-R-04-001).
