Odor Abatement Master Plan

Grapevine, Texas

Perkins Engineering Consultants, Inc. served as a subconsultant to Brown and Gay Engineers, playing a lead role in assessing and prioritizing odor sources at the city of Grapevine’s wastewater treatment plant. The city commissioned this evaluation as a proactive step in addressing extensive residential development in areas immediately adjacent to the facility. This evaluation, completed in 2006, identifies the plant’s headworks facilities, sludge holding tanks, and sludge drying beds as the most cost effective process units to target for initial odor control efforts. The evaluation included training of city personnel for off-site odor monitoring and assessments, and included development of a complaint response protocol or used by city personnel.
