Front Street stink traced to sewer line

A foul odour along the eastern stretch of Front Street has been traced to the City of Hamilton's main sewer line.

A spokeswoman said the “sewage-like” smell was coming from the line between the city's pumping station and Court Street.

Heavy rains delayed work, but a team was expected to go to work early this morning to identify the source of the smell and fix it.

The spokeswoman added the work was “unlikely” to cause any disruption to the public.
