Final Workgroup Session.
Carthage Mayor Jim
Woestman on Tuesday attended a meeting of the
Missouri Department of Natural Resources Odor
Workgroup which was held in Jefferson City. The
purpose of the workgroup is to examine the Air
Pollution Control Program of the Missouri Air
Conservation Commission to determine if changes
are needed. This meeting was the last of six
sessions held by the group.
In a Mornin
Mail phone interview following the meeting
Mayor Woestman said that the session had a good
turnout and that several Carthage residents were
in attendance. A recommendation for Air
Conservation Commission was not finalized during
the meeting, according to Woestman, but the group
made progress and will assemble its final
decision after studying the minutes of the
No conclusion was
made by the group concerning a proposal from
Renewable Environmental Resources to have the
independent company MOCON conduct tests to
determine where certain odors originate. Woestman
said that the panel did speak favorably of a
presentation made by MOCON which illustrated
various methods of detecting the origin of odors
into the air.
Other topics of
conversation included the methods currently
employed by DNR to detect odors and determine
excessive odor violations. DNRs methods
include the use of a scentometer, a box through
which an operator smells a diluted sample of
odors in the air. Woestman said he told the panel
that he felt the ratios of dilution should be
decreased for a more accurate reading.
A meeting between
the workgroup and DNR is scheduled for July 26th
and Mayor Woestman plans to be in attendance at
