It’s a stinky situation. One the city of Mount Washington is taking more steps to solve.
At Monday night’s city council meeting, City Sewer Superintendent Tim Johson gave an update on combating odor. He said he did some research and has isolated hydrosulfide as the problem.
“It releases the gases that they’re smelling and eats at the concrete,” Johnson said.
He said he thinks removing that element at the pump stations could be the key to getting rid of the smell before it even reaches the treatment plant.
