City seeks snouts to help snuff smells
Authorities in New Hampshire want to know if something's still rotten in Concord. In an effort to deal with complaints about odors, Concord officials have hired a Massachusetts company to identify and quantify exactly what smells are bothering residents. The company is looking for several dozen volunteers to help.
Sniffers will be trained to identify smells, and asked to keep records about what odors they detect and when. Complaints have centered on a 23-year-old wastewater treatment plant. Since the Hall Street plant opened, city officials have spent millions of dollars to rid Concord of the smell. The current effort is expected to cost at least another one million dollars.
