Odor Issues

Odor Sources

There are several sources of potential causes for odors in your home or neighborhood.  It may or may not come from the sewer.  If you have a sewer odor in your home, first look for the source in the bathrooms and kitchen. Pour a gallon of water down the floor drains, shower drains and sinks that are not used often. If this does not solve the problem, call the South Valley Sewer District’s main office.
