Odor Improvements

Fox Metro has a rigorous odor control program to assess and subsequently reduce the impact of odors to the surrounding community.   Recent odor investigation work has shown that the raw sewage wet well building at the wastewater treatment plant, known as Building K, is an odor source.   In 2017, an activated carbon adsorption system will be installed outside Building K.  This system is expected to make a significant improvement on the odor issues originating from the plant and will assist with Fox Metro’s ongoing efforts to be good neighbors.


Example of a similar odor control system to be installed at Building K.
