Odours may be stronger than usual near the Westside Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant from June 2 to 6.
Modifications are being made and new media will be installed in the biofilter at the facility off Gellatly Road in West Kelowna.
The open bed biofilter is commonly used at wastewater treatment plants to biologically treat odorous gases that are collected throughout the wastewater treatment process, reducing emissions of foul air.
This work was recommended after an engineering consultant looked at ways of further enhancing odour emission reduction at the facility.
Residents and other stakeholders in the area have been advised of the work.
The Regional District of the Central Okanagan apologizes for any short-term inconvenience this work may cause and is working as quickly as possible in order to minimize any potential impact.
The facility receives and treats just over 10,000 cubic metres of wastewater each day from businesses and households in West Kelowna, Peachland and Westbank First Nation.
