What’s That Smell?!

As the leaves start to fall, many utilities see a rise in the amount of odor complaints being logged. Warm days and cool nights provide an inversion that seems to intensify odor. Coupled with little to no rainfall to flush-out the system, your sewer system becomes a breeding ground for hydrogen sulfide. When hydrogen sulfite is high, the all to unpleasant aroma of rotten eggs begins to lace the air. Chemicals are currently available to mitigate the problem and have proven to work quite effectively. However, these chemicals can become quite expensive if used on a regular basis over a long period over time.
