Abstract: Attendees will have a better understanding of the new policy and the benefits of compliance. The purpose of the CSO Rule or CMOM by EPA is creating a wave of activity across the country. This presentation will help you understand what it means to you. CMOM (Capacity, Management, Operations and Maintenance) was developed from industry Best Practices. The purpose is to deal with the prohibition on SSOs under less-than-flood circumstances—but without a design storm target (which is too variable). EPA decided to focus on proper system management, not on design storm or number of SSO events/year. They believe: (1) Proper management will eliminate overflows except those truly unavoidable; (2) Document efforts to control SSOs.
