Sewage smell reeks up campus

by Aaron Santini

An extremely strong, foul odor was noticeable around the bubble on September 3rd.

The odor was the result the combination of a routine check of the sewage pipes on campus and aeration of sewage sludge.”We aerate out the sludge every week,” said John Weir, who is second in┬ácommand of maintenance. Weir also stated that the odor can vary depending on a number of factors, including wind direction.

“The smell is usually strongest on Wednesdays and Thursdays,” Weir said.

One student described the odor as “one of the worst things I have ever smelled in my entire life.”
