Many Factors Affect Sioux City Neighborhood's Odor

May 6, 2014, 10:17 AM

SIOUX CITY, IA -

The city is continuing its struggle with sewage odors in Sioux City's Riverside neighborhood.

The injection of chemicals into a sewer line has produced mixed results and some mixed opinions from people who live near the Riverside lift station.

One of them, Dawn Mason, says "sometimes you can't even sit outside. Lately, I haven't smelled anything."

Desiree McCaslen of the city's Public Works Department says the chemicals have been effective, but she also says factors beyond the city's control can raise the stink level.

McCaslen says weather is one of the factors. Warm, windy, dry days let odors dissipate. Winter cold cools the sewage, slowing the growth of odor-causing bacteria. Calm, wet, humid days can lead to more odor.
