Developments in web-based technology are beginning to make inroads into wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). Looking to the future it seems likely that information management using webbased technology will become integral to the way we manage and operate WWTPs. This paper presents some of the options for implementing web-based technology for managing WWTP information including advantages and disadvantages of facility information management systems (FIMS or FIM systems) and a description of the decision process to developing a FIM system for a facility. A discussion of the web and database technology available for use in FIM delivery is also provided. A new type of FIM system, a dynamic database-driven FIMS, is described which features dynamically generated web-pages and other advanced functions made possible through the use of a database including improved searching, sorting and administration of data and documents.
