Wastewater collection system odor and corrosion issues continue to grow in importance to communities and to conveyance system owners and operators. Common control methods are typically selected based on field experience as opposed to a fundamental understanding of why and when methods will be successful. Although much is known regarding the cause of odorous gases in the collection system, the underlying science and mechanisms of odor generation, sewer ventilation, odor characterization and monitoring, and corrosion mechanisms have needed further research. This Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF) project helps the industry transition from “odor artists” to scientists and engineers, enabling designers to successfully prevent odor and corrosion events through proper design and for operators to mitigate and prevent odor excursions from existing systems.
