What is SSMP?
SSMP is the acronym for Sewer System Management Plan.
What is the purpose of a SSMP?
A SSMP is a comprehensive plan which includes provisions to
provide proper and efficient management, operation, and
maintenance of sanitary sewer systems, while taking into
consideration risk management and cost benefit analysis.
Additionally, a SSMP must contain a spill response plan that
establishes standard procedures for immediate response to an SSO
(sanitary sewer overflow) in a manner designed to minimize water
quality impacts and potential nuisance conditions.
What are the components of the SSMP?
- Legal authority
- Operation and maintenance program
- Design and performance provisions
- Overflow emergency response plan
- FOG control program
- System evaluation and capacity assurance plan
- Monitoring, measurement, and program modifications
