The foul odor has a distinct smell to those in Milwaukee’s Third Ward and Walkers Point.
“It smells like what everybody had for dinner a couple of weeks ago,” said Eric Paulsen who lives nearby.
He is not alone. Third Ward resident Justin Fazio said, “I think it smells like poop.”
Monday, an MMSD committee approved a $337,750 fix for the filtration system. Officials at the district know that this is just part of the problem of odors from Jones Island and the surrounding facilities that use and produce chemicals.
