This manual should be of primary assistance to wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) operators and management, engineers, wastewater agency management personnel, laboratory staff, and collection systems maintenance supervisors in evaluating and solving odor problems in municipal WWTPs. The manual includes information on a variety of subjects concerning odor control for wastewater interceptor systems, treatment plants, and solids-processing facilities. It is an update to the Water Environment Federation's 1979 Manual of Practice No. 22, Odor Control for Wastewater Facilities. The primary objectives of the manual are to: 1) provide sufficient information for the reader to understand the generation, evolution, and transport of odorants from wastewater systems; 2) delineate odorous compounds, define odor production and monitoring techniques, and provide guidance on performance testing of odor control processes and equipment; 3) describe and detail odor minimization and odor control processes; and 4) provide information on case histories of wastewater odor control programs.
