Urban wastewater systems (UWWS) consist of three main sub-systems: the urban drainage network, the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) and the receiving water. Recent research has shown the potential benefits of considering the three systems as one entity [1,2] when striving to achieve stringent water quality standards. This has become possible due to the better understanding of the systems and improvements in computer modelling of the integrated system. The particular benefit of modelling the integrated system is that the dynamic and multifaceted interactions between the individual sub-systems can be investigated and the impact of the whole system on the river water quality can be determined.
