The aim of the research was the preparation of a model odor control ordinance that could be adopted and applied effectively by enforcement authorities throughout the United States. To meet this objective the following tasks were undertaken: Preparation of a tentative form of a model ordinance; Selection of four air pollution control agencies to evaluate the procedures developed in the second phase of research along with the model ordinance; Instruction of employees of the selected agencies in the proper use of the procedures in relation to the model ordinance; Guidance of selected agencies' project related field activities; and Refinement of the procedures and the model ordinance for submission to the Environmental Protection Agency. It is concluded that a model ordinance cannot be drafted that is compatible with the legalistic approach to controlling air pollution preferred by every jurisdiction. Thus, emphasis in the development of the recommended form of the model ordinance was given to a conceptual framework that would promote the most efficient solutions to community odor problems given the existing state of knowledge.
