Sewage pump stations odour assessment

We help our clients to obtain approvals and develop strategies to manage odour generation in complex sewerage networks.

Why are odour assessments crucial for sewer networks?

Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) generation is the main cause of odour emissions and corrosion in sewer networks. This has become a major source of air pollution and nuisance in urban residential areas, which poses a challenge to obtaining approval for new development projects.

Controlling H2S production in these systems is critical, particularly in complex networks where flows from several pump stations from different catchments are combined.

It is also challenging to design H2S control strategies in sewer networks for new estates with development staged over years, due to flow rates and detention times varying according to time of day and as the project progresses.

What are our odour assessment and mitigation solutions?

Trinity provides odour impact assessments to support development approvals (DAs) and environmental impact statements (EIS)/environmental approval (EA) applications for estates and residential development projects.

Our services include determining potential air quality impacts on nearby sensitive receptors and determining the maximum odour emissions threshold to meet relevant criteria. Moreover, we help to accurately calculate detention times and required pH values throughout the network to control H2S generation.

This ultimately helps to identify preferred chemical dosing locations and dosing quantities to suitably control H2S generation.

The analysis and results of Trinity’s assessments help our clients to obtain approvals and develop proper dosing strategies to control H2S and associated odour generation in such complex sewerage networks.
