Capacity, Management, Operations & Maintenance (CMOM) 2020

The CMOM workshop brings municipal permit holders together with regulators from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), Environmental Protection Agency Region 6 (EPA R6), and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) together to discuss regulatory policy, best management practices, and community health and safety through collection system asset management and proper maintenance and operation.

This year, the workshop will be entirely virtual using GoToWebibnar software. We will use polling features to ensure attentiveness and attendance for the event and allow for CEUs.

Registration rates:
$95 for WEAT members
$145 for non WEAT members. Non member rate includes one year membership to WEAT.

Workshop Description:

Background: Wastewater collection systems that are improperly maintained and operated can lead to sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs), a serious public health and environmental problem. The CMOM approach outlines a dynamic system management framework that encourages evaluating and prioritizing efforts to identify and correct performance problems in the collection system.

Purpose: This workshop will allow EPA and state regulators to come together with their municipal permit holders to discuss examples of strong CMOM practices. Presentations made at the workshop will be available for all attendees.

Audience: All municipalities or special districts that manage wastewater collection systems, as well as their operators, engineers, management professionals and consultants.
