SSO Volume Estimation Series

CWEA WEBINAR: PART 1
Held Tuesday, May 8, 2012

The Changing World of SSO Volume Estimation

After 5 years of the SSO-WDR order, the landscape is changing. Your agency leadership and staff have learned, grown and are likely doing things very differently. The regulators are also learning, and are requiring more and more records to support volume estimation reports.

This webinar provided you and your agency with valuable information on the key changes surrounding SSO volume estimation and why you as an agency manager and data reporter should continue to look at your processes.

The three speakers, Andy Morrison, Union Sanitary District, Sam Rose, South Placer MUD and Shawn Nesgis, Union Sanitary District, presented how they have developed tools for their crews and how they have developed their staff to meet the changing landscape of SSO volume reporting documentation.

SSO Volume Estimation: It's Not Your Grandfather's Tools & Techniques

The spill estimation tools and techniques of the past may not be enough for the current compliance environment.

This webinar provides you and your agency with in-depth review of tools, techniques and how to use them in real world examples.

You will find information on agencies about how they have developed tools for their crews and how to use the tools in your day-to-day work. The presenters in the PowerPoint below will go through the spill estimation tools in-depth and will discuss when and how to use the tool/technique and the limitations of each tool.
