Biannual Update to the City’s Asset Management and Capacity, Management, Operation and Maintenance Plan Development and Implementation

  • Description:  Asset Management Plan (AMP) and a Capacity, Management, Operations & Maintenance (CMOM) are set forth by a prescribed reporting cycle per the city’s Administrative Order on Consent.   AMP and CMOM are written documents that demonstrate on-going steps needed to achieve requirements of the Administrative Order.  
  • Purpose: The City of Canton has been directed by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) in its Administrative Order/EPA-mandate to provide a written guidance program for the operation, maintenance, and long-term capital replacement needs for the city’s sanitary sewers. The Biannual Update identifies progress made and modifications to the original USEPA approved AM & CMOM programs.

Sanitary Sewer Flow Monitoring  (2022)

  • Description: As included in the city’s USEPA approved CMOM plan, this project includes installation of 12 portable flow meters in various sanitary sewer manholes throughout the city.  Flow meters can record and store sewer flow data at each location.  Each flow meter provides information for the sewer basins upstream of the meter.  Flow meters can provide and account for normal (base) flow and extraneous (wet weather) flow at each location.  
  • Purpose: Capacity evaluation is a critical component in the overall efficiency of any sewer system.  Flow meter data provides important information when evaluating sewers, especially those burdened by wet weather backups.  Associated data will be analyzed to further assist development of the overall sanitary sewer system capital improvement plan.
  • Timeline:  Meters installed 04/12/2023.
