Today, we know that not only the sewers carry urban wastewater, but also act as chemical and biological reactors, in which both organic and inorganic substances undergo significant transformations. This article describes a study on the western part of the sewer system of the city of Milan. The hydraulic model of the sewer system was coupled with the chemical and dynamic biological model to assess the extent of the degradation of organic matter in the network. The hydraulic and biological models were calibrated with real data obtained at the entrance of the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) ‘Milan South’ and assuming standard values of daily per capita loads of COD and BOD5.

Abstract

Today, we know that not only the sewers carry urban wastewater, but also act as chemical and biological reactors, in which both organic and inorganic substances undergo significant transformations. This article describes a study on the western part of the sewer system of the city of Milan. The hydraulic model of the sewer system was coupled with the chemical and dynamic biological model to assess the extent of the degradation of organic matter in the network. The hydraulic and biological models were calibrated with real data obtained at the entrance of the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) ‘Milan South’ and assuming standard values of daily per capita loads of COD and BOD5.
