Abstract

The odor problem associated with wastewater treatment facilities has become a significant component in the management of urban environments. In this investigation, an atmospheric dispersion model was developed to estimate the spatial patterns in the concentration of odors emanating from a wastewater plant in Lincoln, Nebr. Model outputs included a series of maps displaying odor concentrations under given meteorological conditions and the frequency of odor days for seasonal or annual time periods. The implications of the results were discussed, and suggestions for further research were presented.
