Combined Sewer

A sewer that transports surface runoff and human domestic wastes (sewage), and sometimes industrial wastes. Waste water and runoff in a combined sewer may occur in excess of the sewer capacity and cannot be treated immediately. The excess is frequently discharged directly to a receiving stream without treatment, or to a holding basin for subsequent treatment and disposal.
