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:
|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
