LEWISVILLE (CBSDFW.COM) – The City of Lewisville on Monday will attempt to correct a problem that residents and visitors have smelled for decades, and the proposed solution is not cheap. Residents in one part of the city, known as the Old Town Section, between Lake Park Road and Purnell Street, east of Interstate-35E, have complained about a foul odor for the past 37 years.
The smell is usually most noticeable when it it hot or humid outside.
The source of the odor is the city’s wastewater treatment plant, which was built before Lewisville experienced rapid growth. The stench was not a problem then because fewer people were in the area to smell it. But now, the plant cannot be moved and nearby residents are hoping for a solution.
The city council is scheduled to vote Monday evening on a $2.7 million fix. Part of the solution would include the installation of odor control equipment. If the council gives this project the green light, it should be wrapped up by summer 2015.
