Deseret News is reporting that residents living north of the Integrated Water Management wastewater treatment facility have been smelling "rotten egg" odors at their homes since at least Spring, 2011. Resident Robert Fitzmorris told the newspaper that "[i]t has a sulfur rotten-egg smell, and when you breathe it in, it immediately gives you nausea and (makes you) lightheaded and causes your throat to be sore all the time." The description of the odor and effects is typically hydrogen sulfide, which is detectable at low levels. Modern wastewater facilities have the capability to contain the odors within the facility grounds.
