Reports of odors from the water control plant on S. Glebe Road surfaced on Sunday. Today the Water Pollution Control Bureau explained that poor truck scheduling and disposal meant "a load of biosolids remained in a bin for several days," the email says. "This overloaded the odor control system and resulted in odors being released."
Plant management has updated the procedures concerning truck ordering and coordination, loading times and procedures, and equipment monitoring to minimize the probability of a recurrence.
