Capacity, Management, Operation & Maintenance (CMOM) Program

A Capacity, Management, Operation and Maintenance (CMOM) Program has been prepared by Fox Metro to meet the requirements of Special Condition 18 of National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Permit Number IL0020818, dated March 1, 2019 from the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency.

This CMOM program has been prepared to provide a centralized document that can be used to more effectively and efficiently manage, operate and maintain the sanitary collection system owned and operated by the District. The goal of the CMOM plan is to manage, operate and maintain the sanitary collection system for the lowest practical customer cost and to protect public health.

Fox Metro prepares annual reports documenting progress as required by the NPDES permit. Abbreviated copies are provided below for the public’s use.
