Odor Problems Solved At Santa Margarita Water District’s Chiquita Water Reclamation Plant In Orange County, CA

Santa Margarita Water District (SMWD) is the second largest water district in Orange County, California, providing water and wastewater services to more than 155,000 residents and commercial enterprises. When a new housing development was planned adjacent to SMWD’s 9.0 MGD Chiquita Water Reclamation Plant, the District initiated plans for enhanced odor control solutions. District staff identified the primary process area (grit removal and primary clarifiers) as a significant contributor to odor emissions.
