Defining and Managing Odors at a Previously Rural Wastewater Treatment Plant
As the Ann Arbor Wastewater Plant (WWTP) found new neighbors moving in, public engagement became more of a priority. One key issue that brought the community forth was odors associated with the plant. This project investigated sources of odors at the WWTP and designed odor control strategies to mitigate neighbors' concerns. Important lessons for the City and community members were that off-site monitoring of odors can help define odor sources which may not be obvious within the WWTP; the WWTP is not the only source of nuisance odors; disruptions to normal WWTP operations has an impact on nuisance odor generation; and odor management and control do not equate to odor elimination.
