2023 Pre-Seminar Workshop #2 - Odour and Corrosion Control in Municipal Collection Systems


0.3 CEUs


Odour and corrosion are long-standing concerns for all municipal collection systems. If a utility is not receiving any odour complaints, then there is a tendency to think that everything is good. Unfortunately, this is not always the case as even low levels of untreated hydrogen sulphide in a collection system are a human safety problem and can lead to corrosion concerns.

This workshop will present the background information that all operators need to understand why odours are generated in a collection system, why they are a problem and how we can best treat the odours. In addition, it will discuss how untreated odours can lead to corrosion and how collection systems can be monitored to understand the source and magnitude of the problem.

Several detailed case studies will be presented from utilities in Alberta and BC that detail the comprehensive monitoring and treatment programs that are in place at these systems. Using their current monitoring tools, our presenters will provide some hands-on work with some of their meters, corrosion coupons and chemical testing equipment.
