The O&M Manual should be a quick reference for successful daily operation and include
anything from trouble shooting to emergency procedures. The rule requires the O&M
Manual to contain:
 Bound and Indexed Equipment Manufacturer Manuals (you can download most
of these manuals off of the web or get them from equipment manufacturers)
 Operation and Control Procedures
 Preventive Maintenance and Repair Procedures
We recommend that you make at least two copies of the O&M Manual and store one in a
safe place in case the plant copy gets lost or damaged by normal use.
The Preventative Maintenance Logs show the date and type of all maintenance
performed. We recommend that you include the Preventative Maintenance Logs in your
O&M Manual Binder.
This is a template and is by no means comprehensive. Each facility is unique and the
complexity of your O & M Manual will depend on the complexity of your facility. This
template has been designed to assist your wastewater facility in developing an O & M
Manual and Maintenance Log that will meet the requirements set forth by the Florida
Department of Environmental Protection.
FDEP Requirements
Operation and Maintenance Manual
“In accordance with Rules 17-600.720 and 17-600.730(4)(c), F.A.C., each domestic
wastewater treatment and effluent disposal or reuse facility must maintain up-to date
operation and maintenance manual(s). The report should indicate whether up-to date
operation and maintenance manual(s) for the treatment and effluent disposal or reuse
facilities are available to the operator at a convenient location. The report should provide
the name and address of the location.
The report should include the date the last up-date was done to the operation and
maintenance manual(s)and indicate whether the manual(s) are revised on a periodic basis
to reflect any facility alterations performed or to reflect experience resulting from facility
operation. A good time to revise the operation and maintenance manual would be during
preparation of the operation and maintenance performance report.
The details of the manual should be consistent with the complexity of the system. The
manual should have been developed in accordance with the unique requirements of the
individual wastewater facility. The report should indicate whether the manual(s)provide
the operator with adequate information and description regarding the design, operation,
and maintenance features of the facility involved.
The report should indicate whether the manual(s) include the information required by
Rule 17-600.720(1)(b), F.A.C. In accordance with this rule, "The manual shall include
basic hydraulic and engineering design criteria for the facility, as well as information and
procedures required for normal control and distribution of wastewater, residuals, and
effluent within the facility. In addition, information concerning process control and
performance evaluation for the facility, as well as equipment and procedural descriptions
(including any notification/reporting requirements of appropriate agencies) for
emergency operating conditions and listing 11 of spare parts to have on hand shall be
included. Regular maintenance and repair instructions for all equipment; laboratory
testing equipment and monitoring procedures; safety and personnel requirements; and a
"trouble shooting" problem guide shall be included in the manual."
When applicable, the report shall also indicate whether the manual includes the
information required by Rules 17-610.330(2), 17-604.600(2)(f), and 17-28.230(3),
F.A.C.” 1
Operation and Maintenance Log
“The report should indicate whether the facility maintains an up-to-date operation and
maintenance log and whether it includes the information required by Rule 17602.360(1)(e), F.A.C.” 2

Maintenance Program
“A good maintenance program is essential for a wastewater treatment plant to
operate continuously at peak design efficiency. A successful maintenance program will
cover everything from mechanical equipment, such as pumps, valves, scrapers, and other
moving equipment, to the care of the plant grounds, buildings, and structures.
Mechanical maintenance is of prime importance, as the equipment must be kept in
good operating condition for the plant to maintain peak performance. Manufacturers
provide information on the mechanical maintenance of their equipment. You should
thoroughly read their literature on your plant equipment and understand the procedures.
Contact the manufacture or the local representative if you have any questions. Follow the
instructions very carefully when performing maintenance on equipment. You must also
recognize tasks that may be beyond your capabilities or repair facilities, and you should
request assistance when needed.
For a successful maintenance program, you or your supervisors must understand
the need for and the benefits from equipment that operates continuously as intended.
Disabled or improperly working equipment is a threat to the quality of the plant effluent,
and repair costs for poorly maintained equipment usually exceed the cost of
maintenance.” 4
There are two basic types of maintenance, preventive and corrective. Preventive
maintenance is scheduled maintenance actions designed to avert equipment failure and
disruption of the treatment process. Typical preventive maintenance would include
equipment and tank inspections, oil changes, lubrication of motors, etc. The goal of a
successful preventive maintenance program is to protect valuable equipment, promote the
longevity of this equipment and to ensure adequate treatment. The second type of
maintenance is corrective maintenance. This type of maintenance is conducted when a
failure has taken place and is required to restore equipment to operational status.
Corrective maintenance is often required at inopportune times and frequently requires a
significant amount of down time.
An effective preventive maintenance program is invaluable. Preventive maintenance can
be conducted at a time convenient to the one performing the maintenance and downtime
is limited. The cost and time it takes to complete preventive maintenance is almost
always less, than the cost and time it would take to complete corrective maintenance.
Florida Rural Water Association recommends the design and implementation of a sound
preventive maintenance program. A practical place to begin is with the equipment
manufacturer recommendations. The details of your preventive maintenance program will
depend on the amount of and type equipment at your facility.

Basic Operation &
Maintenance
It is recommended that you develop a preventive maintenance schedule. An effective
method of breaking down maintenance duties is by how often the maintenance is
required. Depending on the activity, type of equipment and/or the frequency the
equipment is used, maintenance may be required daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly,
semiannually or annually. The charts below are not designed to include all the duties
required at your plant. They are designed to assist you in building an operation and
maintenance schedule tailor-made for your plant. Feel free to add or subtract items as you
see fit.

When preparing a maintenance schedule, always refer the manufacturers’ manual for
each piece of equipment. Equipment manuals will recommend maintenance frequency
and also specifications as to the types of fuel, lubricant or oil needed to ensure peak
performance and maximum life expectancy. Be sure to follow these recommendations in
strict accordance so that you will get the most out of your valuable equipment.
Often overlooked in a maintenance program are the building and grounds. However,
certain items are required by FDEP to be maintained and they should not be overlooked.
Building maintenance should include structures such as, stairways, ladders, railings,
lighting, platforms, etc. Grounds that are well maintained add to the overall appearance of
the plant and also have an impact on an individuals’ perception of the plant and its staff.
Again, this template is designed to assist you in creating your own operation and
maintenance program that is specific to your facility. Please contact your FRWA circuit
rider if further assistance is needed.

An effective method of tracking maintenance is to develop an equipment service card and
also a service record card for each piece of equipment. Examples of both are displayed
below. Both examples are taken from California State Universities Office of Water
Programs, “Operation of Wastewater Treatment Plants, Volume II.”
