This report is part of a major study on the impact of climate change on sewerage hydraulic design The project was wide ranging, but with a principle focus on the performance of sewerage systems under future (year 2080) rainfall conditions and what changes might be needed in the hydraulic design of sewerage systems to address any problems that climate change might pose. Other issues include a summary of international drainage practice and predicted changes in sea levels and river flows.

This report is one of 13 documents collated in 4 volumes.This document is one of four in volume III - Sewerage System Modelling.

The other reports in volume III cover:

  • Evaluation of the changes in the performance of sewerage systems due to climate change using 5 models of selected drainage systems applied to 4 climate regions
  • A summary of the predicted changes in river flows over the next century
  • A summary of the predicted changes in sea level over the next century

This report documents the use of the time series rainfall data produced for present and future rainfall from 7 sites across the UK to look at the performance of overflow structures (spill frequency and volume) and water quality impact of spills in rivers using simple simulation models. Annual and seasonal runoff was also assessed. The rainfall data was also evaluated and certain modelling parameters quantified.
