Katestone – The experts in odour impact assessment for your wastewater treatment or sewage project

The determination of odour impacts from sewage and WWTP (wastewater treatment plants) has become increasing important as:

  • Population has increased and encroachment on infrastructure has intensified
  • Regulators have increased their focus on the protection of amenity
  • Increased ventilation of sewage systems to reduce damage associated with corrosive sewage gasses can result in odour nuisance
