Wessler Engineering is pleased to announce that it now offers training and education services related to wastewater treatment in the form of workshops designed to educate and engage you and your treatment staff by applying “textbook” material directly to your specific facilities.
IDEM will only be accepting electronic reports come the end of 2016. Your wastewater treatment plant's paper reports will soon be a thing of the past. Wessler is here to help make this transition easier. In this blog post we will cover what you will need to get started, what initial steps you need to take, and additional options available to help you make the transition before it is too late!
“IDEM will not accept paper DMRs/MROs/MMRs after the end of 2016. The last paper DMRs that can be submitted will be for November 2016. NetDMR will be required for all DMRs/MROs/MMRs beginning with the December 2016 reports.” - IDEM
Attention Wastewater Operators! Did you know?
IDEM (Indiana Department of Environmental Management) has updated the Bypass/Overflow Incident Report (State Form 48373) that should be used for all SSOs and non-permitted CSO events.
How do I know I have the correct form?
Look in the upper left corner of the form and make sure you are now using State Form 48373 (R6 / 6-15)
Where can I find this form?
Many Water Resource Recovery Facilities (WRRF) -- formerly known as Wastewater Treatment Plants (WWTPs) --in Indiana already have effluent phosphorus limitations or are receiving them for the first time.
Are you a Combined Sewer Community? If so, are you ready for an IDEM Audit? Don’t forget to review and update your Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) Operational Plan.
Some CSO communities are required to submit annual updates to their CSO Operational Plan and others are required to submit updates only when significant changes occur. While conducting CSO Audits, IDEM is finding that updating Operational Plans has often been neglected, or never occurred, even though the original Plans were submitted in the mid-to-late nineties. If your CSO Plan hasn’t been updated, it may need a major overhaul.
