Cedarburg residents are reporting an odor in the city after a pipe break.

According to the city, a private company had a pipe break in their Flow Equalization Tank, leading to the "offensive smell" in the area.

City employees are in contact with the company and are working to put an end to the odor.

The pipe isn't scheduled to be fixed until July 14.
