Wastewater Collection Systems Management 6E
For many local governments, the wastewater collection system is one of the most valu- able assets they own. In addition to being a valuable physical asset, the value wastewater collection systems provide to protect public health and the environment is tremendous. Too often, however, this value is under-recognized and underappreciated by the community. This can lead to inadequate reinvestment in the system and insufficient resources to provide for proper management, operations, and maintenance of the system.
To address these challenges, wastewater collection system managers must be excep- tionally proficient in a multitude of technical and non-technical skills needed to efficiently and effectively operate and maintain a collection system. Wastewater Collection Systems Management (MOP 7; sixth edition) provides guidance, strategies, and ideas that may be used by a system manager to be successful within these many fields of expertise.
