Fort Wayne Getting A Whiff Of A Foul Odor | Indiana's NewsCenter: News, Sports, Weather, Fort Wayne WPTA-TV, WISE-TV, CW, and My Network | Local: "For two weeks now residents from all four quadrants around the city have been calling in reporting a strange smell in the air.
Many we spoke with say the smell is like that of a hog farm or methane gas.
Depending on the wind direction and speed your senses may pick it up all around. This smell has no boundaries.
When city leaders began their investigation they acknowledged the stench but can't figure out themselves exactly where it's coming from.
They do say a couple of factors could be in play.
Our dry summer means low river levels - exposing the bottom of the river to the air, possibly creating some odor.
Also, as temperatures change, retention ponds at the city's pollution control plant can give off gaseous odors.
Fort Wayne Spokesperson Frank Suarez says, “It's one of those things that we will continue to investigate. We have contacted the Allen County Health Department and the Indiana Department of Environmental Management and we will have a team of experts continue to look at this for quite a while and hopefully we will be able to find the cause.”"
