Case Study - Odor Reduction Study
Elevated levels of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) created health problems for animals at a concentrated animal feeding operation (CAFO). Reuse of the effluent in flush gutters also contributed to high odor and nutrient loads within the facility.
Case Study - Dairy
The owner of a 1,500 cow dairy in Colorado recycled water from his waste facility for flushing within his 4 new free stall buildings. The operation is located adjacent to a newer residential development within a northern Colorado community. The dairy received many odor complaints from the adjacent residents of the town.
Case Study - Research Farm Project
Comanche Livestock was established near Strasburg, CO in 1970, growing to a 1,800-sow farrow-to-finish operation. Since that time Denver expansion has crept ever closer, with some developments nearby. Odor had become a challenge for the operation, and was certain to eventually become a bigger issue. Solids build-up were a problem, with the lagoons requiring two separate clean-outs at a cost of $75,000 each time.
