Odor Report Form

Odor Report Form

The City of Kalamazoo is asking the Community for feedback on community odors. We track and measure odors to better understand and minimize them, this information helps to identify the most likely path/source of the specific odors. The information (date, time, location , type of odor) that you provide is reviewed by Wastewater Treatment Plant staff as complaints are received. Operations staff will run a trajectory (path) report that utilizes the location you provided along with local weather, wind direction/speed, and other environmental factors to determine the potential odor source.

The results of these community odor complaints provide valuable data that will be shared with the Odor Task Force to help guide discussions of potential odor sources and reduction efforts. A better understanding of odors will help in the continual improvements being made to minimize Wastewater Treatment Plant and Industrial Odors. If you would like a copy of the trajectory report, please indicate that on the form. We will send that report to you in the following days.

Please complete all fields so that we can accurately register your report. The information you provide the City of Kalamazoo will be shared with representatives of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, Kalamazoo County Health and Community Services, Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy Air Quality Division, and Environmental Service Manager from Graphics Packaging International, Inc. .

If you have difficulties completing this form, or prefer not to share the information with the entities listed, please email the necessary information (name, date, time, location of odor observation, and type of odor you experienced to cokpublicservices@kalamazoocity.org . You will receive a confirmation email immediately following the report submission. Thank you!
