Sewage Treatment Plant Odors


Department of Environmental Facilities (DEF)

Odor Complaint Help Line at (914) 231-2786
(electronically submitted complaints are processed Monday - Friday, 8 am to 4 pm.)
To register for recorded phone calls made by Plant personnel notifying Ludlow Park residents of planned maintenance work that could result in odors, click on the link above. After you register, you will receive an email acknowledging receipt of your request. Once your name and number(s) have been added to the list, you will receive a second email confirming the addition.

Please remember that even though you have received advance notice that there may be odors, you should still call the Odor Complaint Hot Line (914-231-2786) so that management can try to mitigate the problem. We must report all odors if we want to make a difference to our quality of life -- just keep calling!

The County provided specialized manhole cover inserts with carbon filters to deal with odors coming from sewer lines. According to the County, these require filter maintenance every 6 months. If you live or walk by any of these covers and notice odors, please report to the Yonkers Help Line, 914 377-HELP (4357) .
