Many municipalities have moved forward with CMOM (Capacity assurance, Management, Operation and Maintenance) Self-Audits to gauge where their SSO program currently is and where it needs to be to optimize system performance. The audit provides an independent review of existing procedures, program weaknesses and recommends improvements with implementation schedules and estimated costs. Pipeline Analysis staff has performed CMOM Self-audits for the following communities:

  • New Braunfels Utilities, TX
  • San Marcos, TX
  • Port Lavaca, TX
  • Stephenville, TX
  • Garland, TX
  • Mesquite, TX
  • Portland, TX
  • Meridian, MS
  • Diamondhead, MS
  • Corpus Christi, TX
  • City of Denton, TX

Using the Region IV EPA guidance documents, the self audit will address areas such as engineering design practices, mapping, equipment and system maintenance, ordinance review, FOG program, sewer testing, SSO plan, safety program, rehabilitation standards, construction inspection, budget adequacy, staffing, sustainability, human resources, etc. The CMOM self audit performed by Pipeline Analysis, LLC is a tool for the collection system manager to gauge where improvements are needed by priority along with estimated costs and implementation schedule.
