Commercial Sewer Odor: I smell sewer odor coming from a business. What should I do?

While sewers, by nature, have an unpleasant odor, you should not be able to smell sewer odor at a business. Sewer odors inside could indicate a problem with the plumbing or the pretreatment systems. If you smell sewer odor emanating from a business, please enter a case here or contact the Wastewater Operations' Pretreatment Unit at 267-2700.
