Abstract:

This study developed a number of alternative approaches for the management of wastewaters in the Cleveland-Akron Metropolitan and Three Rivers Watershed Areas, in Northeast Ohio and assessed their feasibility. It is one of five such regional studies combining the technical and planning capabilities of the Environmental Protection Agency EPA and the Corps of Engineers. The area was selected for study because of its relationship to environmental changes in the Great Lakes. Early management of wastewaters in this region is expected to lead to early improvements in the quality of Lake Erie. Furthermore, the concepts developed in this study will provide a base for solving wastewater problems in other important source regions.
