If you live in parts of southwest Lexington, you know there's something foul in the air. An unmistakable stench is stinking up neighborhoods around the city's two wastewater treatment plants.
Even though the smelly situation isn't anything new, residents say its getting worse. Many are wondering what is in the water. Plant officials say the same thing that's always been in it, but the hot weather and drought is making an undesirable smell nearly unbearable.
To fight the fumes, officials are trying to suction the smell off with pipes, and spray down waste holding areas with water to keep the odors from wafting. But until the heat backs off and the skies send fresh water. The water will keep smelling the high heavens.
