By 1999, the City of Atlanta had completed negotiations with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) of a consent decree and an amendment requiring, in part, implementation of management, operation and maintenance (MOM) plans for Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) treatment facilities, Water Reclamation Centers (WRCs) and gravity wastewater collection and transmission systems.

The MOM plans for the wastewater collection and transmission systems include:

Collection and Transmission Systems Contingency and Emergency Response Plan;

Short-term Operation Plan;

Maintenance Management System Plan;

Pump Station Evaluations;

Grease Management Plan;

Sewer Mapping Plan;

Safety Training Plan;

Training Plan;

Short-term Capacity Certification Plan; and,

Long-Term Operation Plan.

To date the City has completed preparation and received EPA/EPD approval of nine of the ten plans.

This paper describes the benefits of collection system MOM plans with regard to system performance and protection of public health and the environment. It also presents “lessons learned” in preparing and implementing such plans and identifies key impacts on system operating costs and other resource commitments associated with plan implementation.
