City of Wichita, Kansas’ Odor Control Program – Continuing Optimization with a Cost-Conscious Approach


This paper describes the evolving odor control program of the City of Wichita, Kansas from 2008 to 2015. In 2010, the City reduced odor control technology expenditure due to a reduction of revenues. The odors increased resulting in an upswing in citizen complaints as well as more corrosion in existing plant and lift station equipment. In 2013, the City re-evaluated their existing technology approaches to odor control and implemented optimized chemical dosing strategies to maximize cost-effectiveness and provide wide-ranging benefits. USP Technologies (USP) partnered with the City to implement state of the art chemical dosing controls to efficiently target sulfides with their hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and peroxide regenerated iron sulfide control (PRI-SC®) treatment programs. Implementing the proper treatment technology and chemical dosing controls resulted in dramatically reduced sulfide levels in both the liquid and gaseous phases while providing more cost-effective treatment.
