Using Environmental Management Systems to Lower Operating Costs and Improve Performance

0
The Camden County Municipal Utilities Authority (CCMUA) operates an 80 million gallon per day (MGD) pure oxygen activated sludge treatment plant located in Camden, NJ. It also operates a 100-mile sewer collection system and 25 pumping stations ranging from 1 MGD to 54 MGD in capacity.

The CCMUA has identified three fundamental goals that are critical to the success of its operation:
1. Optimization of Water Quality Performance
2. Optimization of Air Quality Performance
3. Cost Minimization

In order to meet these goals, the CCMUA implemented an Environmental Management System (EMS). The EMS was tremendously successful for the CCMUA. Specifically, the CCMUA was able to significantly reduce its operating costs and thereby has held its sewer service user rate for eleven consecutive years, with three rate cuts during that time frame.
