Special Condition: CMOM Anticipating CMOM Requirements in Your NPDES Permit
For over a decade, operators of separate sanitary sewer systems have been keeping an eye on the U.S. EPA's efforts to adopt a Sanitary Sewer Overflow (SSO) Rule and associated requirements to implement Capacity Management, Operation, and Maintenance (CMOM) program. For several years it seemed like CMOM was dead, so why has it been showing up in some NPDES permits? This presentation provides some insight into why CMOM is showing up in NPDES permits and what operators should be looking for in preparation for CMOM requirements. It provides information on what goes into a CMOM program and what existing resources and tools operators can use to ease the burden of these requirements.
