Many municipalities have moved forward with CMOM (Capacity assurance, Management, Operation and Maintenance) Plan development 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 Plans for the following communities:

  • New Braunfels Utilities, TX
  • Tyler, TX
  • Seagoville, TX
  • Stephenville, TX
  • Garland, TX
  • Mesquite, TX
  • Portland, TX
  • Meridian, MS
  • Diamondhead, MS
  • Corpus Christi, TX
  • Richardson, TX
  • Plano, TX
  • Allen, TX
  • Wylie, TX
  • Prosper, TX
  • Rockwall, TX
  • McKinney, TX
  • Benbrook Water Authority, TX
  • Denton, TX

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