Compact Mónashell eliminates odor at golf resort
The sixth hole on Eagle Pointe Golf Resort's golf course in Bloomington, Indiana has a wastewater pumping station in the rough to the right of the fairway.
For more than 30 years, golfers and homeowners at Eagle Pointe Golf Resort have had to endure the "rotten egg" smell of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) emanating from the pumping station.
Bob Jordan, a frequent golfer at Eagle Pointe and the manager of municipal sales for DBO Technologies had an idea. Bob had seen and heard about the results of Anua's Mónashell biofiltration system for odor and VOC abatement.
When he learned that Anua was introducing a Compact Mónashell, he asked to try one out at Eagle Pointe. The system was installed and running in less than a day.
After a few hours, the odor on the sixth hole began to dissipate and ever since then, golfers and homeowners have been enjoying the great odors with no "rotten egg" smell.
According to Scott Wolfla, golf course superintendent, "this is the first time in the four years I've been working here I can remember being able to smell wild onions on the sixth hole. When we turned the Compact Mónashell off, within 10 minutes the 'rotten egg' smell was back. Compact Mónashell has been a tremendous addition to Eagle Pointe Golf Resort. I highly recommend it as an excellent solution for odor problems around lift stations, pumping stations and manholes."
If you have odor issues due to lift stations, pumping stations or manholes in your neighborhood or community, Compact Mónashell is a cost effective and environmentally-friendly solution that can eliminate odor within a day. Models are available that work both above ground and below ground.
