Moberly Working on Mitigation Plan for Odor at Rollins Street Sewer Lagoon

Last week the city of Moberly received its second violation notice from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources about the odor coming from the Rollins Street Sewer Lagoon. Interim Utilities Director Steve Wilson says the ongoing drought has been a factor in the increased smell and there is a second issue.

A company came in to clean 48-thousand gallons of grease off the top of the lagoon, but that only limited the issue. Wilson discusses the new plan.

The city had submitted a mitigation plan to DNR prior to the second violation notice. Wilson says the plan has been tweaked slightly.

The Moberly City Council held a special meeting Monday afternoon to finalize the plan.
