The U.S. EPA continues to develop proposed National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit requirements for capacity, management, operation and maintenance (CMOM) programs for municipal sanitary sewer collection systems. Primary goals of CMOM are as follows.
- Better manage, operate, and maintain collection systems
- Investigate capacity constrained areas of the collection system
- Reduce and/or Eliminate sanitary sewer overflow (SSO) events
