Public Works takes steps to eliminate odor
Placeholder Image
MONROE - The Public Works committee has approved a plan to reduce the odor from Monroe's wastewater equalization tank with a floating cover structure comprised of a number of hexagonal pieces. Hexa-Cover discs block out UV rays to reduce organic growth of algae in the tank and also reduce both evaporation and emissions by up to 95 percent. Public Works Director Colin Simpson sees the system as most beneficial for its ability to control odor.
