“The Northeast Guide for Estimating Staffing at Publicly and Privately Owned Wastewater Treatment Plants”
This guidance, which is an update of the EPA staffing guide for the operation of POTWs published in 1973, will allow users to estimate the appropriate staffing level for most of the publicly and privately owned wastewater treatment plants in the Northeast. The recommendations on staffing will help facility managers and assistance providers keep facilities in compliance and help non-compliant facilities get back on track. The information in the guide can also be used to support budget allocations, identify performance-limiting factors, inform composite correction plans, and evaluate proposals for contract services. The guide is an invaluable resource for municipal managers, consultants, contract service providers, and federal and state technical assistance providers.
