Odor Solutions Underway
Today (12/17/2020), we had to complete an urgent repair that created strong odors. The odors should be reduced by Monday. Thank you for understanding.
Fox Metro has a rigorous odor control program including many initiatives to reduce odors. We are continuing to evaluate and test different solutions to improve the odors. Some of our recent odor control initiatives include:
- Installed 2018 — new odor control system at Building K, located at the north-central area of the wastewater treatment plant
- Installed 2019 — new odor control system at the Reckinger Road Pump Station on the east side of Aurora
- Under construction 2020 — new odor control system at Building B3, located at the southeast corner of the wastewater treatment plant
- Ongoing seasonal treatments for odors — hydrogen peroxide at the north headworks, potassium permanganate at the south headworks, and an odor-neutralizing spray at the sludge storage building.
We truly appreciate the patience of our neighbors as we work diligently to resolve odor issues.
