Supply of ghastly urine-flatulence mixture stench boggles Albany officers


Officers in Albany are looking for the supply of an unknown stench — that isn’t coming from the legislature.

The foul odor — described as a ghastly mixture of urine and flatulence — has been offending noses throughout the Capital Area since September.

The state Division of Environmental Conservation was lately enlisted to unravel the malodorous thriller.

The aroma’s depth appears to fluctuate relying on the climate and appears to linger all through the North Albany neighborhood across the Interstate 787 and Interstate 90 interchange. 

“Unsurprisingly, all of us appear to be downwind from the Capital,” quipped Councilman Joe Borelli, the Republican minority chief from Staten Island. Brigitte Stelzer

“Unsurprisingly, all of us appear to be downwind from the Capital,” quipped Councilman Joe Borelli, the Republican minority chief from Staten Island.

The DEC is asking residents to report any “unfamiliar and unsightly” odors to its Divisions of Air and Water.

The chief suspects are a close-by composting facility, low tide from close by lakes or the Hudson River, and the county’s water purification and sewage therapy plant, which is lower than a mile from the North Albany neighborhood.
