Project: WWTP Odour Impact Assessment

Sunraysia-460x210

Client: Sunraysia Environmental

Location: Wentworth, South-west NSW

Services Provided: Odour assessment, Emission inventory, Dispersion modelling.

Project details:
KMH Environmental (KMH) conducted an odour impact assessment for Sunraysia Environmental on behalf of Wentworth Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) on the proposed upgrade of the plant in NSW. The objective of this assessment was to determine the effects of the proposed upgrade on any sensitive receptors (e.g. residents) in the Wentworth area resulting from the odour emissions. KMH generated an emission inventory based on a typical treatment plant for the upgraded capacity of the WWTP. Dispersion modelling was conducted according NSW regulatory guidelines using the Ausplume Gaussian Plume Dispersion Model (version 6.0). Results were found to be within the assessment criteria at all identified sensitive receptors.
