A Composite Correction Program (CCP) identifies causes of performance problems at publicly owned treatment works (POTWs), addresses systematically and in order of priority of impact on plant capability, and describes solutions to problems. The objectives of a CCP are to improve performance and bring noncomplying POTWs into compliance. The purpose of the study was to demonstrate the use of the CCP concept on a statewide basis to improve compliance and to develop criteria to incorporate the CCP concept into the State of Colorado's municipal compliance enforcement strategy. Sixteen plants were selected for on-site plant evaluations and five 'limited'; i.e., minor design modifications not involving major construction; CCPs were conducted at those facilities which showed the most application. Performance was improved during four of the five CCPs and during three of the other eleven comprehensive evaluations.
