10 Difference Between Combined and Separate Sewer System

10 Difference Between Combined and Separate Sewer System

Following are the 10 difference or comparison between combined and separated sewer system:
Let,
Combined System =C
Separate System=S

1.
C: In this system, only one set of the sewer is laid and carries both sewage and stormwater.
S: In this system, two sets of sewers are laid for carrying sewage and stormwater separately.

2.
C: The cleaning of sewers is easy as they are of large in size.
S: The cleaning of sewers is difficult as they are of small in size.
3.
C: The maintenance cost is less.
S: The maintenance cost is high.

4.
C: The load on the treatment plant becomes high.
S: The load on the treatment plant is less.

5.
C: Self-cleaning velocity is easily achieved.
S: The self-cleaning velocity is not easily achieved.

6.
C: Strength of sewage is less.
S: Strength of sewage is more.

7.
C: This system proves to be uneconomical when pumping is required for the lifting of sewage.
S: This system proves to be economical when pumping is required for the lifting of sewage.

8.
C: The stormwater is unnecessarily polluted.
S: The stormwater is not unnecessarily polluted.

9.
C: Initial cost is less.
S: Initial cost is more as compared to the combined system.

10.
C: This system is suitable when the rainfall is small and evenly spread throughout the year.
S: This system is suitable when the rainfall is uneven or it is heavy for a short duration.
