When a Mid-Atlantic water authority received complaints about odor, corrosion, and safety issues, Evoqua replaced a liquid bleach system with a nonhazardous, comprehensive solution for effective odor and corrosion control.
In the Summer of 2014, Evoqua Water Technologies was contacted by a Mid-Atlantic water authority to propose an odor control solution at one of their pump stations. The Authority was treating the odors with a sodium hypochlorite (bleach) solution to varying degrees of success. Downstream hydrogen sulfide levels in the atmosphere were the primary contributors to odor complaints, reports of corrosion, and worker safety issues. Evoqua had provided other odor control solutions at a different location for the Authority previously, but this site was still using a legacy solution.
