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.
