Abstract
This report presents an evaluation of potential odor sources in an area of Kansas City, Missouri. The evaluation was accomplished by collecting background and source samples to obtain a 'fingerprint' for each potential odor source. The source 'fingerprints' were then compared with five odor complaint 'fingerprints' to determine the odor source. The probable source was identified as Chemagro Corporation in two odor episodes, American Oil Company in one odor episode, and a combination of Conservation Chemical Company and Chemagro Corporation in two odor episodes.
