Wichita-area utility plans fix for sewage smell

PARK CITY, Kan. (AP) — Utility officials say they have short- and long-term fixes to combat sewage smells wafting through Park City.

A Chisholm Creek Utility Authority spokesman told KAKE-TV (http://bit.ly/1yCnUzI ) Wednesday that workers will install a charcoal filter on a sewage air release pipe. He says there should be a reduction in the sewage odor within a few weeks.

The spokesman says the utility plans to later add an oxygen injection system that will prevent the odor from being produced.

Residents started complaining about the smell earlier this month. The utility says air release pipes for the system were recently moved because of a new development.
