Pump Station Odor Control

KC was tasked with finding a means of eliminating the sewage odors being emitted outside the bar screen building at the Tri-Municipal Sewer Commission Wastewater Treatment Plant. There are various methods of removing odors caused by wastewater from the air. KC recommended a drum-style air scrubber be installed, maintained, and operated by the plant operators. This type of system consists of an inlet, a drum containing the media with a fan, and an outlet. The media is located in the drum and air is forced up through the media to be treated; air is then released back into the room. This system runs continuously, reducing the odor of the building should the ventilation fans need to turn on during an alarm condition. KC reviewed the bids, coordinated the installation and electrical work with the operators, and oversaw construction management.
