Town looking to find source of odour eminating from catch basins

Residents living around the Avenues and Riverview Drive are not happy with the smell of sewage in the area that is so strong, it often prevents them from enjoying the outdoors.
Arnprior council recently received letters from several residents in the area complaining about the “potent sewage odour” and “disgusting odour of sewage” in the neighbourhood. Several indicated “most days, the smell is so obnoxious we are unable to enjoy the outdoors.”
“We’ve got Public Works and waterworks working on the issue,” explained Janet Collins, director of Public Works. “It is going to become quite a large procedure.”
According to residents, the smell emanates from catch basins and not the pumping station and Collins agreed.
