RE: Odor prevention at a lift station



Let me ask some questions since I am not familiar with a waste water lift
station. Are you pumping from one underground waste pipe to another
ungergroung waste pipe at a higher elevation? Is veting to atmosphere
neccessary or is it "just there". Why is there a vent? Can everything just
be sealed up? Can the atmospheric vent be changed to a closed vent, perhaps
with a blower, that ends up in the upper pipe?

Can anyone suggest how to reduce the odors at a waste water lift station
located in a residential area.  Maskants have proved costly and
ineffective at preventing odors.  Any one know of anything innovative
and inexpensive for this municipal sewer system.  Any help will be
greatly appreciated.
