Identifying the Cause of Sewage Odor

Sewage odor is a common pollutant in many areas, yet few people are aware of its origins. In reality, sewage odor stems from the buildup of bacteria and grime in sewage systems due to wastewater passing through pipes.

Over time, a slimy biofilm forms along these pipes, allowing hydrogen sulfide to develop and create an unpleasant sewage odor. This smell not only disrupts the environment but also corrodes pipes, meaning sewage systems must often be replaced prematurely due to damage caused by corrosive chemicals.

Common Sources of Sewage Odor

Smelly sewage odors can be bothersome - especially when we least expect it! Common sources of sewage odor often include sewage overflows and drains, sewage treatment plant emissions, improper and/or inadequate maintenance of sewage systems, cracked sewage pipes, and septic tanks.

Other sources of sewage odor can come from nearby bodies of water that contain decaying matter such as deceased fish and other organic waste, which can contribute to bacterial growth.

Reduce or Eliminate Sewage Odor

Luckily there are ways to avoid sewage odors including regular sewage system maintenance, keeping the surrounding area clean by disposing of organic waste promptly, using proper plumbing techniques when working with sewage systems, to name a few.

Instead of finding a permanent solution for the constant problem of sewage odor, most wastewater professionals deploy an array of chemicals and equipment to try to remove the odor after it has formed.

Yes, typical odor-fighting methods are effective. But these odor-masking tactics suck up staff time, can hurt your system and equipment, are usually not the safest for the environment and cost a lot of money.
