In response to your request, Kansas does not have an odor regulation as such. The only way of addressing odors is under K.A.R. 28-19-13 Interference with Enjoyment of Life and Property. I do not believe it has been used much if at all. It can be downloaded at this address: http://www.kdhe.state.ks.us/pdf/regs/28-19.pdf.

 The only Missouri Regulation I am familiar with is 10 CSR 10-2.070 Restriction of Emission of Odors. It is specifically for the Kansas City Metropolitan Area It can be downloaded at: http://mosl.sos.state.mo.us/csr/10csr/10c10-2.pdf.

 It also uses a Scentometer manufactured by Barnebey & Suttcliff Corp. with two readings at least 15 minutes apart but within one hour. It sets a limit of one volume of odorous air diluted with 7 volumes of odor-free air must not be detectable. The is also a subset of this regulation called Control of Odors from Class 1A Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations. This section references ASTM test Method E 679-91 re-approved in 1997.
