10/8/18: Western Sugar Explains It All

It's complicated, but promising

An admin at Western Sugar conveys the following points:

  • They are not proud of the smell, primarily because it signals inefficiencies in the sugar manufacturing process (inefficient processing = sugar in the wastewater = sugar feeds the microscopic life in the retention pond = dog poop smell)
  • They have taken action that should decrease the dog poop smell, including:
    • updating its port extractor;
    • bringing in new admin; and
    • adding an oxidizer to the retention pond.

If the dog poop smell comes back, people should contact Western Sugar's Jerry Darnell at jldarnell@westernsugar.com
