Prince George, B.C. – About a dozen workers at the Native Friendship Centre on 3rd Avenue in Prince George   had  been forced from the building  this morning while  the source of an odour was  pin pointed.

The Prince George Fire Rescue members  attended the scene.

It is now thought perhaps the odour  was coming from  a City sewer service.

The site was determined to be “clear” and workers have since been allowed to return to the building.



There is a joke in there somewhere ………………..

Speaking of big stinks – later at night, when driving down Peden Hill, near Cowart Road, there is the rankest stench I have ever smelled. I am assuming that it is from the sewage treatment plant. I don’t know if they vent at that time of night, but whoo-ee, I hold my nose as I drive by!

    It is like that most of the time during the evening and overnight. The smell even gets all the way down to the new subdivision at the end of Malaspina. You should try sleeping with your windows open.

    And I am always puzzled by the people eating at the ice cream stand on Cowart…just above the water treatment plant. Yum….

Was at Costco the past two weekends and I agree with the previous post about the smell in that area. Glad I don’t live in that part of town.

When I read the headline I thought the story was going to be regarding the sewage treatment plant stench they unleash upon us.
