Odor Control Plan

 

Odor Control Plan

For each odor-emitting source/process outlined in 1b of the Odor Control Plan, specify the administrative and engineering controls the facility implements or will implement to control odors. Administrative and engineering controls shall include, but are not limited to, the following sections:
 This section should include evidence that engineering controls meet at least one of the following
    1. Are consistent with accepted and available industry-specific best control technologies designed to effectively mitigate odors for all odor sources.
    2. Have been reviewed and certified by a professional engineer industrial hygienist as sufficient to effectively mitigate odors for all odor sources.
3.) Components of engineering controls -  This section shall include, but is not limited to, technical system design, a description of technical processes, and an equipment maintenance plan.
The engineering control system and all components shall be reviewed and certified by a professional engineer of a certified industrial hygienist as meeting professional expectations of competency and as sufficient to effectively mitigate odors for all odor source.
 
This section shall include but is not limited to, technical design, a description of technical processes, and equipment maintenance plan.
If the facility reasonably believes that Engineering Controls are not necessary to effectively mitigate odors for all odor sources, the facility shall submit as part of its OCP the basis for such belief.
 
A Sales or MIPs facility that demonstrates all of the following does not need engineering controls to effectively mitigate odor:
  1. The facility does not use oil activation processes on-site or all products are made with activated oil.
  2. the facility does not use distillation or extraction processes on-site, or the facility has received a permit from De Beque fire protection district to use certain distillation or extraction processes
  3. the facility does not have cultivation processes co-located on-site.
 
Timeline for implementation of odor mitigation practices
The timeline should begin upon receipt of approval from the Town and should include a comprehensive timeline for the design, review process, installation, and of the various odor mitigation practices outlined in section 2 of the OCP. In general, a timeline should consist of, but is not limited to, the following:
 
  1. Approval of the OCP by the Town
  2. Approval of OCP by other review agencies
  3. Purchase and installation of engineering/mitigation controls
  4. Inspections and approval by the Town
This section may include but is not limited to, and the responsible staff involved in, receiving odor-related complaints, how and by whom such complaints will be addressed, and how the odor complaint and response will be recorded (e.g., logbook, report, etc).
Note: If the owner or operator of a facility believes that certain information contained in is odor control plan is confidential, it should clearly mark all information as such. This does not guarantee that such information will be exempt from disclosure under the Colorado Open Records Act.
