Formatted abstract
This paper reports an integrated modelling methodology for simultaneously investigating the effects of network dosing of chemicals on sulfide control in sewers and N and P removal at the downstream WWTP. The changes in influent due to chemical dosing are considered in evaluating the WWTP performance. For the sewer system studied here, oxygen is the most cost-effective option without considering the impact on the WWTP. Once the impact on the WWTP is included, the operational cost for oxygen increases, as an extra carbon source is needed to improve the N removal performance. Ferric chloride becomes the most cost-effective option since it also enhances P removal.
