Environmental performance … environmental compliance … sewer system overflows … capacity assurance – all very hot topics in today's times. And with these issues, enforcement is poised to strike a hard blow to the wastewater collection operations throughout the U.S. in the form of the Environmental Protection Agency's proposed Capacity, Management, Operation & Maintenance (CMOM) regulations (See draft Management, Operation and Maintenance Comprehensive, List of Programs for Sewer and Treatment Systems, Environmental Protection Agency – Region 4). These regulations and the proposed CMOM program are complex on many levels. To assist utilities with this effort, it is important to know what tools are available. It is Charleston CPW's experience that an Environmental Management System (EMS) could provide a solid foundation for launching a CMOM program.
