The City of Owatonna expanded their waste water treatment facility which entailed expanding the odor control system as well.


Owatonna is a city in southern Minnesota with a population of approximately 25,000 located about an hour south of Minneapolis. Legend has it that Princess Owatonna, the sickly daughter of Chief Wabena of the Dakota Indians, was brought to the waters of the mineral springs of Maple Creek which supposedly had magical healing powers.

In March of 2010, the City of Owatonna expanded their waste water treatment plant which is situated on the Straight River, just upstream from Maple Creek. The Mechanical Engineering firm of Wentz Associates, Inc. designed an odor control ventilation system that was to be installed by Forte Mechanical under the supervision of Magne Construction, the General Contractor on the project.

Midwest Mechanical Solutions, Monoxivent’s representative in Minnesota, got the approval to supply Monoxivent’s Corrosion Composite duct work in accordance with the written specifications for this project. Monoxivent manufactured all of the 14”, 24” and 30”odor control fiberglass duct work along with the dampers and two custom built fiberglass hoods for odor capture.

Corrosion Composites by Monoxivent; an integral and vital part of a project designed to help safeguard the healing waters that aided in the recovery of the City’s namesake.
