Sewer Gas Smell in Homes

The City of Le Mars Wastewater Treatment Facility is reminding all Le Mars residents to run water down every drain in the home at least once a month to have water in the traps. Especially all basement floor drains. This keeps the sewer gas from getting into the home.

If you should smell sewer gas in your home:
• Open windows for ventilation and/or run fans to expel the sulfur smell.
• Run water into the drains.
• Clear all vents of debris (leaves, twigs, bird nests)

If you have any questions, please call the Wastewater Facility at 546-5003.
