No More Funkytown

Has anyone noticed that Salemtown no longer stinks the days after holidays and on Mondays? I think that we have all avoided discussing the absence of funk so as not to jinx ourselves, but it's been at least 6 months now since I detected the sludge scent, which used to waft westward from the Central Wastewater Treatment Facility over on 2nd Ave. at least one day a week. The short-term changes Metro Water started late last summer seem to be working, even as we await the 2008 completion of construction of the new biosolids facility and its greenway.


  1. I agree, except I smelled it again this morning, but it wasn't as bad as previously. Anyone else smell it this morning??

  2. Didn't smell anything this morning. But I did yesterday afternoon when I was at the baseball field (it was very minimal). It was definately the first in a very looooong time.
