Field Odour Study Case Study VDI Method

In May 2013, NSW Environment Protection Authority (NSW EPA) engaged The Odour Unit Pty Ltd (TOU) to conduct a baseline regional odour assessment covering the McGraths Hill/Mulgrave/Windsor area of North Western Sydney. The request for this assessment was in response to community odour complaints and concerns over an extended period regarding the level of odours suspected to be originating from the activities undertaken in facilities within the McGraths Hill/Mulgrave/Windsor area. The facilities in the area that had been previously identified as being potential odour sources and were therefore covered in this assessment included ELF Farm Pty Ltd, South Windsor Sewage Treatment Plant and McGraths Hill Sewage Treatment Plant.

As will be discussed in this report, a number of other odour-generating industries were identified and their odour impacts quantified during the assessment, including a poultry broiler farm and a pet food plant.
