Interceptor Odor Events

Interceptor Odor Events



An interceptor odor event occurs when odors released from the interceptor pipelines and pump stations are easily recognized by the average person and reported to Regional San staff.


No more than 6 interceptor odor events per year.


This service level reflects the effectiveness of our odor control equipment and practices in the interceptor pipeline system.

Critical Impacts

Interceptor odor events can be caused by the failure of odor control equipment, failure to provide adequate odor control chemicals and failure to keep facilities clean or covered for prolonged periods. The potential for odor events is increased when flow in the pipelines is low and temperatures are high.
