Odour Assessment: SPS and your Royal Flush
You’re a developer with an amazing hand – a perfect location, cutting-edge designs, quality contractors and prospective clients – if it were a game of poker you’d have a Royal Flush.
But there’s one catch – your proposed development is located near a sewage pump station (SPS).
There’s nothing worse than the smell of sewage in the morning, and you don’t want your new development to smell…like a Royal Flush! That’s why it’s important to conduct an odour impact assessment for your development application.
How do you know when your development needs an odour assessment?
It depends on the guidelines of your local government area, but generally an odour assessment is required if your proposed development is located near a potentially offensive odour that could lead to annoyance or nuisance.
What does an odour impact assessment entail?
Odour assessments require skilled professionals in the areas of meteorology, data analysis, and air quality – in essence, you need a company like us. An odour assessment can include:
- An emissions inventory;
- Meteorological datasets for use in dispersion modelling;
- Odour dispersion modelling to determine the level of odour likely to be experienced at your development;
- Compliance checks with odour guidelines; and
- Mitigation tactics and control measures to manage odour impacts if non-compliant
