About The Project

The Problem

When stormwater overwhelms the MDC’s sewer system, it causes sewage overflows and backups into neighborhoods and basements.

The Solution : The 5 Components

The MDC developed five components to address the overflow problem in order to comply with a federal  consent decree form the EPA and a state consent order from the DEEP.
