There is a lot involved in operating a wastewater collection system.  If you are new to the industry, it can be overwhelming.  It can take years to learn the different aspects of collection system operations and maintenance, let alone become proficient at each.  This guide is intended to provide a broad overview of all aspects of collection system operations and maintenance with the new or inexperienced Collection System Operators in mind, yet it includes enough detail to provide the journey-level operator practical and real-world information.


This book offers a unique perspective on collection system O & M.  It is written from a practical point of view rather than a technical one.  It includes years of boots-on-the-ground experience from people who spent their careers in the field, who learned hard lessons, who learned new ways of doing, who have learned from others and are now sharing all of this with new wave of collection system operators.  


This book offers insights into CCTV inspections, rodding, and hydro-jetting operations, SSO response, including spill volume estimation, lift stations, bypass pumping, performing spot repairs and dealing with the public basic math, just to name a few.    

Notes from the Field is not a substitute for experience, but it will enhance your experience and help you to become a better, sooner, and help you to have a successful career as a collection system operator.
