  • Description:
    Do you smell bad environmental odors in your community? How often? Every day or just once in a while? Do they annoy you or make you feel sick? How can you know how much environmental odor is too much and when an odor becomes a health hazard?+++Everyone reacts to environmental odors differently. Some people are more sensitive to environmental odors than others. When you are more sensitive to an odor, you may have symptoms even at a low level of the odor in air. In general, as concentration levels increase, more people will have symptoms.

    If an environmental odor is affecting your daily life, you can get help. Your local health department or code enforcement agency can investigate odors and decide whether they are harmful. You can help them by keeping an odor diary.
