Combined sewers are a legacy from early development in the City of Winnipeg, discharging land drainage and sewage to the rivers. They were the standard design practice prior to sewage treatment plants being built. Now dry weather sewage is collected from the combined sewer system and treated, however, overflows to the rivers do occur during rapid snow melt and heavy rain storms.
In order to control and reduce Combined Sewer Overflows (CSO) in Winnipeg, the Province of Manitoba issued the City of Winnipeg Environment Act (EA) Licence No. 3042 on September 4, 2013. This presentation will focus on the CSO Master Plan for the City of Winnipeg and how the new CSO EA Licence will change the way combined sewer districts are operated and redeveloped in the future.
