Smelly situation in Lower Saucon

LOWER SAUCON TWP., Pa. - Residents in one Northampton County township want to get to the bottom of a stinky situation.

Several neighbors complain of odors in Lower Saucon Township, including the Steel City community.

The state Department of Environmental Protection has received dozens of complaints over the past year or so.

Neighbors told 69News they believe the smell is coming from a nearby landfill.
But a DEP spokesperson said they haven't yet been able to pinpoint the cause.

An IESI landfill official says they are aware of the concerns and have a proactive nuisance minimization program in place.
