The District is required to meet certain air quality requirements in order to operate. Given that the treatment of wastewater has the potential to produce foul odors, the District has invested in two odor control towers which help to “scrub” the air released during in the processing of wastewater and solids to limit the emissions released into the air. The odor control towers use ferrous chloride and sulfur-eating bacteria which help control the amount of sulfur gas (hydrogen sulfide – the rotten egg smell).
