Preventing sewer overflows is a national enforcement priority for the EPA.  All sewer pipe materials are susceptible to SSOs due to the accumulation of FOG, roots, debris, and structural anomalies.  Certain types of sewer pipe materials are limited on the type of cleaning processes that can be used without damaging the pipe. Municipalities nationwide are taking a preventative approach to sewer maintenance by implementing a CMOM Program that includes aggressive sewer cleaning methods.  Learn how these guidelines can reduce frequency of cleaning and SSOs.

1. Explain the differences between “Passive” and “Aggressive” Cleaning
2. Discuss how the EPA guidelines drive our cleaning strategies
3. Discover how pipe materials and tool designs limit cleaning effectiveness 
4. Identify how to reduce frequency of cleaning and SSOs
