MMS developed MMS SOFT database after working
with several municipalities that were struggling to
track SSOs, sewer maintenance activities, and newly
developed FOG program information. State agencies, as
well, expressed an interest in having a database that
could allow them to query SSOs by stream basin, city,
POTW, reason for SSO, and action taken to prevent future
SSOs. Also, sewer maintenance work orders and records
for many cities do not have the ability to query for
labor hours and labor rates of personnel or specific
equipment for specific sewer maintenance activities.
In addition, state agencies want to track the amount
of specific maintenance activities that the POTWs conduct
in their respective collection system areas (e.g. feet
of sewer line cleaned, feet of sewer line televised,
feet of sewer line replaced, etc…).
MMS SOFT brings 3 modules together that can improve
collection system data management and tracking. Easy
to use scroll down option menus make MMS SOFT very
user friendly. Customized query and export reports
make it easy to do data summary reviews and reports
to the state or EPA.
If you represent a city or utility and are interested
in the SOFT database, please contact
