I was on US 23 this afternoon and I smelled it right after Heath Beach, almost to the Cement plant.  Even the lady who I was giving a ride said something.  (I told her, "It isn't ME"!! )   :o

Ok heres what I know.
Dundee cement is closed so thats not the smell anymore from their stacks.
Mathes has a hog farm at M50 and Niemen rd that stinks pretty bad when he spreads manure on the adjacent fields. That's the smell you get there.

Dundee no longer treats their water. They buy it directly from Monroe now.

That building on M50 is not a gas line building. It is the booster pump for city water from Monroe.

Last but not least, Horky's drilled 2 new deep wells to irrigate the 160 acre farm that straddles M50 at Nieman rd and they now irrigate with sulphur water so between the hog manure and the sulphur water for those big irrigation pivots its gonna stink near that area on a regular basis.

Thanks for clarifying that Mav...    like I said above, I don't got M-50 very often...   I remember seeing big pipes when they were building it...   and I'm pretty sure someone told me it was a gas line project...

Sounds to me like there still must be multiple sources...

or a vast US Guvment conspiracy :o :o :o

Well I'm glad I wasn't the only one that has smelled it.
If you all got on here and said no... Then I would have to get the ol' sniffer checked... as well as my mind.

I was thinking gas since by the RR bridge, on the east side, there is a house with a pipe arched up out of the ground.

I didn't mean anything bad toward the farmer's in the area about chemicals and I'm sorry if it came across that way. I was just trying to figure out what it might be. I stopped one time and picked up a white plastic barrel from a local farm and some liquid was still in it and it did not smell that good so I was thinking that is what it might be.

What Maverick said make sense.

Makes sense, but I doubt the Horky's are irrigating anything this time of year.  I have smelled the sulfur smell recently, after the crops were harvested.  I know it can't be coming from Holcim's stacks, since they are no longer there.  But the smell can still come from the pit, if they are still blasting, and extracting limestone.  Does anyone know if the pumps have been shut off in the Holcim pit?  Or is Stoneco still operating down there, pulling out limestone?  Because even when Holcim was making cement, they had a joint venture with Stoneco, in that pit, to mine limestone.

I was just wondering if they still were.  If so, that could be a source of the smell.  When Holcim was there, I was in that pit, and it STINKS when you get near it.

Don't know if the pumps are shut off or not but Stoneco isn't the company still mining limestone there. It's Stansley Brothers out of Sylvania Oh.

Thanks for the clarification, Maverick.  You are correct - it was Stansley mining limestone there.

So I take it that they're working out of the Dundee cement plant... I've been by there the last couple of days and seen cars parked there and seen some people out and about.

Same for me yesterday.
I'm thinking either the "problem" was taken care of or, the cold air is keeping the smell down.

I haven't heard anything since the Village replied to posts from people on their Facebook about a sewer/sulphur smell, but here is what they posted there.

From the Village"s Facebook page, comments from others:

"Village of Dundee Michigan This issue was discussed this evening at the village council meeting. We wanted to let you know that it is being investigated

It is in the right column, just under the weather report.  "Kimberly Tennyson Sodergrenposted toVillage of Dundee Michigan November 19 via mobile".  Then you will have to click "view all 8 posts" to find the Village post.  I think you can find it now.  Sorry Mayo.  I'm not too familiar with FB either.

Ok, got it now. Thanks again. I don't read the MEN much and I haven't heard of anything being in it so "maybe" something will show up on here.
