This paper aims at comparing the cost-effectiveness of the two main types of urban drainage systems, that is, the combined sewer system and the separate sewer system, based on the analysis of simulations. The problem of which of the two systems is better was heavily discussed over the years and the answer given to the question was usually: 'it depends'. In this work, specific impacts are investigated in terms of a cause-effect analysis. The results are subsequently summarized and can help in… CONTINUE READING
