Greater Bridgeport Combined Sewer Overflow
~ A Guide for Residents
Portions of the Bridgeport sewer system
are over 100 years old. When they were
built, a single pipe carried both sewage and
storm water. This existing system is called
a Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO)
system. During a heavy rainfall or when
there is significant snow melt, too much
rainwater or melted snow gets into the
sewers. Instead of following its intended
path to the wastewater treatment plant,
the overflow goes directly into waterways
in the Greater Bridgeport area.
