This study was performed to sample for odors in the West Bank Sewage Treatment Plant (WBSTP), operated by the Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans (S&WB), and evaluate odor control measures for the WBSTP. This study was initiated to address and control complaints of odor emissions from the plant into an adjacent residential area. The study follows a previous study conducted by Montgomery-Watson, the West Bank Collection System Odor Study (July 2000), which included sampling for odors and evaluation of odor control measures for the West Bank sewage collection system. According to their report potential locations of odor emissions around the plant site were identified and a number of odor control chemical agents were applied to determine the agent with the most effective odor control effect. To evaluate the odor control effect, the concentration of Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) was measured at the previously selected locations of odor emissions and used as a parameter to observe the effect of the chosen chemicals.
