History Of CSO's
A portion of the city of Frankfort's sewer system is comprised of combined sewers. Combined sewer systems are designed to collect rainwater runoff and domestic sewage. Most of the time the combined sewer system transports all of the wastewater to the Frankfort treatment plant before discharge to the Kentucky River. During periods of heavy rainfall or snow melt the wastewater volume in a combined sewer can exceed the capacity of the sewer system. For this reason, combined sewers are designed to overflow occasionally and discharge excess wastewater
