Stinky Air Traced to Brewery
You can blame the brewery for that offensive odor of effluvia in and around downtown La Crosse during the last several days. City water utility manager Mark Johnson tells us some sort of malfunction at City Brewery's pre-treatment plant overwhelmed that plant and then did the same to the city's nearby sewage treatment facility. The result: a really, really bad smell in the air over the week-end and one that continues in some respect today. Johnson says both his facility and the Brewery are working on the problem and making some progress.
