Abstract:This paper presents the methodology, scope, and key results of collection system management, operation, and maintenance (MOM) program audits for two Florida wastewater utilities. Both audits were performed in accordance with guidelines set forth by the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 4, in one case at the invitation of EPA Region 4 and in the other case at the utility's own initiative. For each utility, more than 30 MOM programs were audited with respect to their defined purpose, written program documentation, personnel and resources, performance measures, and annual performance. The results of the audits are summarized and selected MOM program performance metrics for the two utilities are compared to benchmarking data from other well-operating utilities and published guidelines as a basis for assessing the effectiveness of the programs.
