A. Content. Operation and maintenance manuals including the monitoring and operating requirements contained in 9VAC25-790-260 through 9VAC25-790-300 shall be prepared for all sewerage systems, pumping stations, and treatment works evaluated in accordance with this chapter, except as noted in this chapter. Owners shall submit updated information for any operational changes that affect treatment capacity or operational performance by 25% or more. Manuals for new construction or revised pages for existing but modified (upgraded) facilities submitted to the area engineer for evaluation will also be processed.

Copies of the manual submitted to the area engineer shall be in the number up to that specified for plans. An evaluation will not commence until the applicant has submitted all necessary information (see 9VAC25-790-950).

B. Evaluation. The department will evaluate the technical contents of the manual and will notify the owner (and manual preparer if appropriate) of the approval of the manual, or of any necessary revisions to the manual. The owner is responsible for ensuring that the required revisions are made and submitted to the department. If the additions or revisions to the manual are deemed satisfactory the department may not formally notify the owner who may implement those changes.

C. Approval. The department will approve or disapprove the manual and notify the owner in accordance with 9VAC25-790-80 C. If the manual is conditionally approved as submitted, such notification will include the conditions, if any, which must be satisfied for final approval. The owner will be responsible for ensuring that such conditions are satisfied in accordance with the CTO (9VAC25-790-190).
