This paper will present a synopsis of the Environmental Protection Agency, Region 4 (EPA R4) history with regard to the development and implementation of the wastewater collection system management, operation and maintenance (MOM) program. The paper is divided into six parts: In the Beginning; The Federal Advisory Committee; “The Epiphany”; The Region 4 Solution, The Intended Use of MOM; and, “The Kinder, Gentler Approach”.

Thus, this paper will cover the initial period when Region 4 was taking enforcement actions against wastewater collection systems such as Miami-Dade County, Florida which were experiencing the escape of sewage from the sanitary sewer system (sanitary sewer overflows or SSOs) for a number of reasons through to the formulation of an industry standard to guide, and evaluate the performance of, publicly owned wastewater collection systems.
