Water Pollution Control Issues Statement


Nara Manor, Superintendent of Water Pollution Control Utility, today issued the following statement in response to questions about the odor coming from the Water Pollution Control Plant in Anderson.  

“I know that some of you have noticed increased odors coming from the wastewater plant.  We have been working on a construction project which requires that certain parts of our facility be out of service.  This work is a part of our Sewer Long Term Control Plan required by the federal government.  As Pollution Control continues to work through our upgrades, it, unfortunately, causes more odor than usual to be generated.  We would also like to assure our citizens that this odor presents no health dangers to our environment or the public.  Our department is making repairs to equipment that has been in service since the 1960s without a break.  ” 

Manor provided information about a temporary fix for the problem with the following: 

“This project is scheduled to reach final completion in December.  In the meantime, we are installing a temporary system that will reduce odors.  This temporary system has been used in other cities with great success.  Our contractor is working diligently to complete the project.  I apologize for the inconvenience that you are experiencing.  I appreciate your patience as we work to improve the city infrastructure to extend its functional life.”
