A standard methodology is presented to remediate odour nuisance at sewage treatment plants. The basic procedure of this methodology is formed by a conscious scheme which integrates all relevant steps in the remediation process (investigative actions, migitating measures, communication, etc.). Theaim of this methodology is to obtain a realistic plan of action, keeping count with local boundary conditions (available resources, available knowledge, certainty about the causes, etc.). In this way, the methodology functions also as a backbone when a well defined odour regulation is lacking, as is the case in Flanders for the moment.
