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) .
