The Cobb County Water System (CCWS) operates and maintains approximately 2,500 miles of sanitary sewer and thirty-eight wastewater lift stations. Continuing growth, urbanization, changing hydrologic conditions, and age contribute to strain on this infrastructure. In addition, new regulations will impose additional issues and constraints. Cobb Water has prepared a document which explains a formal Capacity, Management, Operations and Maintenance (CMOM) Program. The Program’s approach is environmentally conscientious and cost-effective. The Program elements outline and provide specific activities and reporting procedures to document the conduct of the Program. Current and anticipated federal and state requirements will be satisfied.


The Program’s goals are:

alt Properly manage, operate and maintain all parts of the collection system, at all times.

alt Provide adequate capacity to convey base flows and peak flows for all parts of the collection system.

alt Take all feasible steps to stop, and lessen the impact of, sanitary sewer overflows for all parts of the collection system.

alt Provide notification to parties with a reasonable potential for exposure to pollutants associated with an overflow event.

alt Develop a written summary of the CCWS CMOM Program and make it available to any member of the public upon request.
