Time to vent

Why the sewage smell in Downtown Dartmouth?

Halifax County installed sewage vents to vent sewer gas; on Portland Street in front of Tim Hortons at Maitland, at the bottom of Maitland, and at the bottom of Old Ferry Road.

They were installed when the sewage treatment plant and lateral were installed, after amalgamation. They smell – it lingers. It’s constant. It’s gross.
