The water reclamation plant at Mt. Dora, Florida had an odor problem at the headworks collection well. Several pump stations in the community send their water to this location. The discharge of the various lines is random. At times one line may be discharging water while other lines are idle. At other times multiple lines are discharging. There are periods of no water discharge at various times during the day. As a consequence, hydrogen sulfide (H2S) levels vary greatly from hour to hour and even from minute to minute.

The Mt. Dora WWTP needed a reliable, inexpensive, easy-to-operate odor control system. Like other municipal wastewater treatment authorities, Mt. Dora preferred a biological odor-control system to a chemical wet scrubber. Chemical scrubbers can react instantly to changes in the H2S loading. Biological systems, though much less expensive to operate over time due to zero chemical demand, have a reputation for reacting slowly to changes in sulfide loading. Mt. Dora therefore accepted a full-scale biotrickling odorcontrol system from a consortium of companies, on the condition that no purchase order would be issued until such time as the system proved itself to be capable of eliminating odors and providing quick response to frequent changes in malodorous gas loadings.
