What is done at the plant to control odors?
The primary sources of odors in a treatment plant are the open tanks. The solids handling building is meant to be closed, to contain process odors. These units have varying types of odor-chemical and biological odor-treating processes. Plant staff are aware of the potential impact of odors on the surrounding neighborhood, and strive to operate and maintain the equipment to minimize potential impact of any transient odors.
