NOSTRILS 'AFFLAIR'

The nose knows.


Ogden, Utah, officials have enlisted citizens, with the help of a $1,475 olfactometer, to sniff out objectionable odors in the city.

The city has received complaints for years about the odors permeating from a nearby pet food company, American Nutrition Inc., so a sniff squad, headed by municipal code enforcement officers, was formed.

The volunteers will be trained to use the device that hopefully will help identify noxious odors that impact air quality.

Agricultural and manufacturing facilities, other than those processing animal or marine products, will not be in violation of the law if they can demonstrate they are using the best available technology to control odors.

But rest assured, no one will raise a stink if the sniff police, armed with a book of matches, turn up their noses when the meter malfunctions due to an olfactory overload.

Smelly cat!

We could use a smell meter here in some parts of Jersey.
Any northern part of the NJ Turnpike would make the meter goes nuts!
