Wastewater collection system operators, managers, and engineers are faced with many key decisions on a daily basis. With aging infrastructure, maintenance concerns and rising costs, strategic and cost-effective operation and management of collection systems is a must. More than ever, municipalities are faced with the challenges of complying with state and federal environmental regulatory requirements.
