The for the past few days is not emanating from the Brightwater sewage treatment plant, according to the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency.
“We’ve determined that it is not Brightwater,” said Kimberly Cline, communications specialist for the agency that monitors air quality in the Puget Sound. “The investigation is one going as to what is causing the smell.”
Area residents have said the air smells like animal waste or strong fertilizer.
Cline urged residents to notify the agency as the smell is occurring by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling the clean air hotline 1-800-595-4341.
“It’s much easier for the investigator to determine where the smell is coming from if he can smell it first hand,” Cline added.
