OdoWatch used for odour monitoring at United Utilities's Davyhulme site
A team of graduate engineers at United Utilities has installed an innovative system to tackle odours at Davyhulme wastewater treatment works.
The OdoWatch Platform will help engineers at the site to reduce the chance of smells escaping from the treatment process. It is the first time the OdoWatch platform has been installed in the North West region and it will help the water company be a better neighbour to residents living in the Urmston and Davyhulme areas in the United Kingdom.
The Odowatch platform works by constantly “sniffing” the different parts of the treatment process and giving an early warning if odours start to develop. Engineers can then take early action, reducing the chance of smells becoming noticeable off site.
The platform also uses live weather data to build up a picture of how factors like temperature and wind speed could affect the odours.
