“RECENT EXPERIENCES WITH ODOR CONTROL ISSUES IN THE CITY OF ATLANTA”
Abstract:As urban areas expand and close in around once isolated wastewater treatment plants the impacts of its odors on the surrounding communities need to be mitigated. In 1995 the City of Atlanta (COA) embarked on a program to address the odors at its wastewater treatment facilities. This paper describes how the COA successfully solved the odor problems its wastewater plant and pumping systems inflicted on its neighbors. Odors emanated from four sources: RM Clayton Water Reclamation Center (RMC WRC), South River Water Reclamation Center (SR WRC), Utoy Creek Water Reclamation Center (Utoy WRC) and the Flint River force main.
