S32 E14: Peoria’s Combined Sewer Overflow Solution

Season 32 Episode 14 | 26m 40s

Innovation officer Anthony Corso and civil engineer Jane Gerdes explain the city of Peoria’s proposed solution to combined sewer overflow. Pipes in older parts of the city combine sewage and stormwater. During heavy rains, some combined waste overflows into the Illinois River. Peoria is proposing a “green” solution using bioswales, permeable surfaces and other methods to curtail the overflow.
