This paper is concerned with the integrated modelling, and control of urban wastewater systems (UWS) comprising the wastewater treatment plants (WTP), receiving waters (river) and the sewer networks. A unified framework is developed and simple models are used and implemented in Matlab/Simulink to produce a toolbox. Novel linear and nonlinear control structures are then proposed to design integrated control systems to improve the river water quality. A case study is simulated and simulation results are presented to demonstrate the possible improvement that can be achieved using a holistic integrated control system approach
