EPA opens comment period for sanitary sewer overflows
June 4, 2010
The EPA has opened a period for public comments on whether to revise its rules for sanitary sewer overflows
(SSOs). The agency is soliciting opinions on six questions regarding SSOs, including whether it needs to implement separate permit conditions for certain sewer collection systems (to distinguish them from the municipal wastewater plants
they serve), and how the agency should address peak-flow conditions at those publicly-owned treatment works (POTWs).
