ODOR CONTROL RESOURCES

  • Turning your water tap on only to be encountered by a terrible stench is arguably one of the worst ways to start your day. Your immediate reaction may be to assume that your water supply is contaminated, but there are myriad reasons why your household water has suddenly developed a pungent odor.

  • The Plant’s wastewater treatment facility uses four, covered anerobic lagoons to manage BOD, pretreating wastewater prior to sending the effluent to a pumping station which directs the wastewater into the municipal collection system for final treatment at the City’s wastewater treatment plant. Read more to learn how the company used hydrogen peroxide and a catalyst to maintain an aerobic environment but was unable to adequately mitigate the odor from the facility’s wastewater.

  • Wastewater from the meat processing facility is treated using a sequence batch reactor and an aerobic lagoon that discharges to surface waters following treatment. The facility replaced surface aeration equipment with two, 350-HP the “no-splash,” side-stream SDOX systems retrofitted to the treatment basin. Read the full case study to learn the results.

  • Officials at the Jefferson Parish Sewerage Department approached the team at Digital Engineering to find a long-term solution for the odor and corrosion issues throughout the East Bank Wastewater Treatment Plant. The consultants at Digital Engineering, headquartered in Kenner, La., began researching methods to reduce odor and corrosive compounds flowing into the plant while also protecting the parish’s infrastructure from the harmful effects of hydrogen sulfide (H2S). Because expensive chemicals fail to prevent the occurrence of H2S, plant consultants opted to use oxygen to minimize corrosion while reducing chemical costs.

  • Plant officials at a 12 MGD wastewater plant in Arkansas began evaluating disinfection alternatives to upgrade their current system as well as address the removal of contaminants of emerging concern (CEC). The facility, which included primary clarification, activated sludge, secondary clarification and sand filtration, elected to use dissolved ozone to replace its current ultraviolet (UV) system. After researching different ozone systems, plant officials chose to install BlueInGreen’s HyDOZ® technology in order to more efficiently meet current permit requirements, as well as prepare for future legislation.

  • The wastewater facility servicing the Company's Millsboro processing plant uses a continuous process reactor and discharges to 900 acres of Company-owned cropland using spray irrigation. Read the full case study to learn how the facility replaced mechanical surface aerators with SDOX® technology to fulfill the oxygen needs of the various biological treatment processes without interrupting operations.

  • The wastewater pre-treatment plant processes effluent from the manufacturing facility prior to discharging into the sanitary sewer system for treatment at the municipal wastewater facility. Use of sulphuric acid to manage the pH of the wastewater in the buffering reactor tank prior to entering the DAF for solids and oil removal was considered to be an unnecessary risk requiring significant safety protocols.

  • Natura Solve provides a complex liquid medium that is produced via a proprietary fermentation process. It consists of a selected spectrum of naturally occurring microorganisms, sustained within a matrix of micro elements and macro elements that provide the critical building blocks for respiration and growth. Thus it simultaneously works as both a biocatalyst, stimulating endogenous bacteria metabolic and production rate and a specialized delivery medium for the highly effective bacteria. The formula is very aggressive due to the essential balance between the selected groups of microorganisms, which, when combined with the enzymes they produce, synergistically create catalyzing proteins that significantly speed up the biochemical reactions and natural decomposition processes of the organic material into humic matter.

  • In this discussion, I am going to discuss general issues in wastewater treatment and specifically the collection phase of waste treatment. We all realize the effort and expense that goes into treatment-plant technology, but many don’t seem to realize that the collection phase is where we get “more bang for the buck.”

  • Beginning early in 2019 our office began receiving complaints of sewer odor in the neighborhood of Fountain Ridge Section III (FR III), located in Prince George County VA. The County Operations staff investigated the wastewater collection system that serves the neighborhood, and found that odor was proliferating throughout the neighborhood. Corrosion of the sewer manholes was clearly evident.

  • Landlocked, shallow bodies of water such as recreational ponds, irrigation, drinking water and animal waste lagoons have a major problem with flow. The only natural methods of movement in these bodies of water are the slight Coriolis Effect of the earth and wind. Neither of these natural mixing sources is sufficient to allow shallow water bodies to respire and deal with the natural biological degradation of wastes and detritus that eventually form on the bottom. Eventually, external problems will occur – algae begins to form in abundance, odors will emanate from the water due to stagnation, blue-green cyanobacteria will form on the surface and cause more odor and toxicity, and eventually the water is no longer capable of supporting basic aquatic fauna reproduction.

  • Management of wastewater sludge is a core responsibility of treatment plant operators. With this responsibility comes common challenges that must be overcome.  These include controlling odors so as to have a minimal impact on the surrounding community and minimizing hauling costs for its disposal.  Getting a handle on both of these responsibilities and more can be much easier with the proper sludge-thickening equipment.

  • As we approach the hottest months of the year, wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) operators face a range of challenges arising from elevated summer temperatures. With all due respect to Eddie Cochran, this article outlines some of the cures — or at least preventive steps and countermeasures — for wastewater treatment’s “summertime blues.”

  • Hayogev is a residential development in the rural area of Jezreel Valley, with 1000 homes, agricultural fields and dairy farms. Located in an open field next to small farms, the local treatment facility handles wastewater from HaYogev and Midrach Oz. The customer was looking for a localized wastewater treatment solution to replace the existing pond system, which faced difficulties in treating the wastewater due to high levels of nutrients. A new state-level regulation concerning reclaimed water required the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) operator to reduce the nutrients in the effluent stream. The solution had to be odorless and quiet, have low power consumption, and use the existing pond and structure.
