Poor data management and inadequate preventive maintenance are considered significant causes for some DOD wastewater treatment plants failing to meet their National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit requirements. Microcomputer-based operation and maintenance OM management systems have been successfully implemented in private-sector wastewater treatment plants and can provide similar plants at Army installations with improved management of process control parameters, trend analysis to simulate and control processes, automatic report preparation, and better preventive maintenance management. this report provides a detailed evaluation of microcomputer-based OM management systems for use in Army waterwastewater treatment plant operation. In particular, capabilities of various microcomputer-based process management and maintenance systems were compared to determine how this technology could best be exploited in Army applications. Field demonstrations of microcomputer technologies for sewage treatment plants were performed at Fort Sill, OK, and Fort Meade, MD, and the essentials of an effective preventive maintenance program outlined. Guidance for selection, procurement, and implementation of microcomputer-based OM management systems at Army waterwastewater treatment plants were then chosen based on the analysis. Author
