Recently, the design and permitting of a multimillion-dollar odor control upgrade was completed for the 80-mgd Delaware No. 1 plant. This plant is owned and operated by the Camden County Municipal Utility Authority (CCMUA) in Camden, New Jersey. The project is currently under construction and most portions will be completed and on-line by the Water Environment Federation annual meeting in 2002.

This upgrade was recommended as a result of a plant wide odor study. The study explored the potential odor impacts from the sources at the plant and from surrounding industries. The study resulted is a four-phase approach to reduce odors from the plant and impact to the city. The first phase consisted of operational changes and/or improvements that required minimal capital to implement. The Authority implemented the Phase 1 improvements quickly. The second phase, the phase that is presented in this paper, was broken into four separate improvements. Each improvement involved different technologies (a two-stage wet scrubber, a biofilter, a carbon system) and ventilation modifications that were best suited for each source's unique characteristics.

An odor model was applied to predict the current and future odor impact to the surrounding community. The results of the model are presented in the paper. By phasing the odor control improvements, the modeling results, which tend to be conservative by design, for the post-Phase 2 improvements can be field verified. By including chemical and power provisions now for potential future phases, we can proceed with a phased approach and limit the cost difference between a complete plant odor control system installed today and four independent odor control projects.
