What's that smell?

Smell something off in West Kelowna?

Staff are replacing biofilter material at the the Westside Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant, which may produce periods with more odour than usual in the Gellatly Road area.

Installation continues through Friday. 

The system biologically treats odourous gases collected through the wastewater treatment process, helping to reduce foul smells. However, it takes a few days to get the new biofilter up to 100 per cent performance.

The filter material was last replaced in 2016.

The regional district apologizes for any short-term inconvenience.  

The facility receives and treats about 10,000 cubic metres of wastewater each day.
