Email News Alerts

With the weather warming up, there’s been a familiar and unfortunate odor in the air on the south side of town.

The expansion project at the wastewater treatment facility, which has the promise of fixing the odor problem for good, is behind schedule. That means things are not yet running at full speed, and the odor will remain an issue in the short term.
