CITY OF ALBUQUERQUE'S SOUTHSIDE WATER RECLAMATION PLANT ODOR CONTROL PROGRAM
Abstract:The City of Albuquerque operates a large (60 MGD average flow) wastewater treatment plant. It is the only plant serving the city, and long detention times in the sewer results in significant odor problems at the plant. Past odor control measures have met with limited success. Therefore, a comprehensive odor control program was required to define the sources of the odor and recommend the most cost-effective improvements. Sampling and analyses using hand held monitors and D/T measurements were used to quantify odor at the various locations where odor potential was known to exist. Recommendations were based on eliminating the majority, but not 100 percent, of the odor sources at the plant at an estimated construction cost of 3.7 million. Controlling 100 percent of the odor at the plant was estimated to cost 30–40 million.
