This subject, Urban Wet-Weather Flows, is comprised of three basic subareas - combined-sewer overflows (CSOs), sanitary-sewer overflows (SSOs), and stormwater discharges. Major proceedings related to wet-weather flow (WWF) published during 2005 were the following: (1) WEFTEC 2005, 78th Annual Conference and Exposition (WEF, 2005); (2) Effective Modeling of Urban Stormwater Systems, Monograph 13 (CHI, 2005); and (3) 2005 Watershed Management Conference - Managing Watersheds for Human and Natural Impacts (EWRI, 2005). In addition to the conferences listed above, the 2005 Annual Conference of the American Water Resources Association, EWRI's World Environment and Water Resources Congress the 10th International Conference on Urban Drainage had significant sessions on wet-weather flows. In addition, many regional conferences also had significant sessions on wet-weather flow issues, such as the 2005 Pennsylvania Stormwater Management Symposium. For all of these, no indexed paper proceedings had been indexed at the time that this literature review was prepared.
