This report synthesized the results of a research initiative commissioned by WERF. Its purpose is to help define the current state of decentralized source controls for capturing rainwater where it falls and to present a plan for implementation of decentralized controls in an urban environment specifically for the goal of CSO mitigation. The primary focus of the applied research was how decentralized controls can reduce the volume of rainwater runoff generated and, consequently, entering the combined sewer system in urban areas.
