Wastewater Assessment CMOM Program

Capacity, Management, Operation and Maintenance (CMOM) Program Self-Assessment and Corrective Action Plan (CAP)

The City of Chelsea retained Weston & Sampson to assist with assessment of their existing wastewater system activities as they relate to a formal Capacity, Management, Operation and Maintenance (CMOM) program. Weston & Sampson provided assistance in two parts. First, we worked with the city to complete the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) New England Wastewater Collection System CMOM Program Self-Assessment Checklist. This checklist is a comprehensive set of questions to assess a broad range of CMOM topics including, but not limited to:

  • Knowledge of collection system components and mapping
  • Operation, maintenance and inspection of facilities and equipment
  • Condition of system facilities
  • Hydraulic capacity
  • Organizational structure, staffing, training
  • Safety and emergency preparedness
  • Customer service and communication
  • Recordkeeping and information management
  • Financing for operation, maintenance and capital improvement
  • Energy use

After completion of the CMOM Program Self-Assessment, the second part of the project was to create a Corrective Action Plan (CAP). The purpose of the CAP was to identify deficiencies highlighted by the Self-Assessment and provide recommendations and schedules for corrective actions to remedy the deficiencies.
