Workshop on June 16, 2015 to Cover New DNR SSO Rule
The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) on August 1, 2013 passed a new rule to address Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSOs), in a proactive effort toward sewage collection system operation and maintenance. The new rule requires Sewage Collection Systems to provide the DNR with a Capacity, Management, Operations and Maintenance (CMOM) plan. The plan requirements include: operation and maintenance activities, addressing SSOs and backups, plus plans for improvement, among other items. NEW Water will be working with the DNR to learn more about the new rules, and will share further information as it becomes available. The DNR's new rule can be found on their website, specifically in sections (NR 110, NR 205, NR 208 and NR 210) here. Additional information regarding CMOM plans can be found here.
The DNR held a meeting at their Green Bay office on Nov. 21, 2013, please see the announcement below, and the downloadable PDF on the right column of this page.
