In accordance with Special Conditions (SCs) 13.13 and 14.11 of the Calumet and Lemont National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Permit Nos. IL0028061 (effective August 1, 2017) and IL0028070 (effective February 1, 2008), the following plan is approved for monitoring the frequency and duration of the discharge from select representative CSO outfalls authorized in the permits for which the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (District) has the ability to monitor through telemetry. These monitored CSO outfalls represent the remaining unmonitored CSO outfalls, so if the monitored outfalls discharge, it is assumed that the associated unmonitored outfalls also discharge.

The 52 CSO outfalls listed below will be monitored as required in SCs 13.13 and 14.11. They include all CSOs for which the District has the ability to monitor through telemetry. This list has been updated to account for multiple outfalls associated with each dropshaft/TARP structure.

The District will document the frequency and duration of CSOs through the outfalls listed below along with an estimate of storm duration and total rainfall for each storm event. Based on this information, the District will estimate CSO volume (MG), BOD5 loading (pounds), and SS loading (pounds) that accounts for all of the CSO outfalls within the District’s service area. The District will continue to monitor these designated CSO outfalls at all times unless the telemetry is out of service due to malfunction or routine maintenance. The results of the monitoring will be submitted to the IEPA on a quarterly basis: February 25, May 25, August 25, and November 25.
