Project Description


The Camden County Municpal Utilities Authority authorized D&B to investigate odor sources at the 80 MGD Design Flow, Delaware No. 1 Water Pollution Control Facility(WPCF). It was determined that the existing chemical scrubbing facilities could release odor compounds other than H2S.

Biofilter facilities were investigated in order to better treat 120,000 CFM of odorous air from various sludge handling facilities as well as reducing maintenance and reliance on chemicals. D&B completed contract documents to allow for public bidding of the biofilter facility as well as to obtain ARRA funding.
