|Publication Date:||1 January 2018|
|ICS Code (External sewage systems):||93.030|
This Standard addresses considerations for adapting wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) to a changing climate by reviewing climate, regulatory, risk, design, construction, and operations and maintenance aspects. It applies to existing, new, or retrofit/upgrade projects.
This Standard provides a user-friendly framework and tool for designers, engineers, and managers to use when designing, constructing, or operating/maintainin
This Standard provides guidance on climate change data sources and how to use them in determining impacts on WWTP components.
This Standard highlights climate change adaptation measures for building resilience and addressing high-risk scenarios related to WWTPs.
This Standard applies to the WWTP itself and its processes and property. It does not apply to collection systems feeding into the plant or to disposal receivers.
In this Standard, "shall" is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; "should" is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and "may" is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the standard.
Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.
