City staff says all the city's wastewater goes through Lift Station #1 and they've received ongoing complaints on the smell for over 10 years.

Staff says the city currently spends $12,000 a month for odor control options but have been unable to find a long term solution.

The proposed pilot study will test a different biological option for reducing hydrogen sulfide and to help with the odor issues.

Total cost for the study is over $53,000.

If approved, the pilot study would start this spring and go into the summer.
