Odor Monitoring

The sixth and final season of dredging has been completed. Backfilling of previously dredged areas with clean material extended into November 2015. Processing facility operations will be ongoing until all dredged sediment has been transported offsite, which is expected to occur by early December 2015.  

Performance standard monitoring continues. For Phase 2 odor monitoring data, click on the calendar below. Odor Monitoring information can also be viewed on the Quality of Life Monitoring Interactive Map. Phase 1 monitoring information is available by clicking on the link at the bottom of the page.

Legend:

Typical Operations: No presence of uncomfortable odors.

Control Level: Presence of uncomfortable odors was noted by the remedial action team or by the public.

Exceedance Level: Exceedance of the hydrogen sulfide standard (0.01 parts per million [14 µg/m3], one hour average) OR frequent, recurrent odor complaints related to project activities.

Goal of the Standard

The performance standard for odor requires the control of the sources of potential odors and ongoing follow-up of any odor complaints. In the event of a complaint, monitoring of hydrogen sulfide is required. The performance standard sets the following limits:

PollutantPerformance Standard
Hydrogen sulfide 0.01 parts per million

 

How Does the Standard Work?

  • Regular observations
  • Receive and investigate complaints
  • Take action to minimize odors
  • Reporting and notification by the cleanup team to EPA
