If you smell a strong odor of hydrogen sulfide (rotten egg odor) in your neighborhood, this can be an indication of changing conditions or other problems in the sewer collection system.
If you notice the odor in your house, first check your P-traps. Odors can occur when P-traps dry out, so try running water through them for 60 seconds. If the odor does not disappear within an hour, please call our dispatch office at (505) 857-9287 - Option 1 to report the problem, or fill out and submit the Odor Control Request form below. Please include your telephone number so we can call to get more information and confirm that we are following up on the problem.
The Water Authority thanks you for helping us meet our strong commitment to addressing sewer odors.
