Your Nose Knows

Call MSD when you smell odor from the Sewage Treatment Plant

As many of you have noticed, the Little Miami Sewage Treatment Plant is releasing unpleasant odors on a consistent basis. It it important that you call the MSD to report it every time you experience odor so that they can keep track of these occurrences and work toward a solution. 

*****Odor Complaint Hotline*****

If you are experiencing an odor from an MSD wastewater treatment plant, please contact our Odor Complaint Hotline.

Operators are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 
(513) 557-5979. 
Please call the hotline as soon as you notice the odor so we can investigate the source.

Note: If you are experiencing a sewer gas odor inside your home, please call MSD's 
Customer Call Center at (513) 352-4900.

Improved Traffic Safety at Walworth Delta & Eastern Intersection

Surely most of you have noticed the changes on Delta between Columbia Parkway and Eastern Avenue. This area of the neighborhood has long been a confusing, dangerous intersection. It is now being made into a 4-way stop where Delta, Eastern, and Walworth meet. Part of the sidewalk in front of The Precinct is being bumped out as well. These changes make for safer driving and make it easier and safer for pedestrians to cross Delta and Eastern.

Steering Team member Matt Yauch applied for street calming measures through the Neighborhood Business District Improvement Program (NBDIP) in prior years. Funding through that program was not available, but the City came up with other funds to improve this corner of Columbia Tusculum. The changes will be finalized over the next month.
