Adequately controlling odours is one of the steps in achieving the desired outcomes for the operation of a wastewater system. Odour management, when implemented and incorporated into the routine work practices, greatly reduces the risk of problematic odour events occurring.
The Practical Guide to Odour Control in Sewage Transport Systems has an introduction into the history of sewage transport systems and issues with odour and corrosion. There is a chapter on odour and odour chemistry, as well as a further chapter on measuring odorous compounds and gas flows.
Sewage transport system components, odour targets, controlling sulphide levels in sewage and treating odorous gases are covered in dedicated chapters. Further to this there is a practical procedure chapter on solving odour problems.
