A state lawmaker is continuing to investigate a foul odor that’s been bothering some people who live on Endicott’s North Side.

Residents have been complaining about a strong smell that apparently has been emanating from a wastewater treatment facility operated by i3 Electronics on the Huron Campus.

Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo attended a meeting last month during which complaints about the stinky situation were discussed.

Lupardo says there seems to be “a persistent smell on weekends” in the area near the facility.

Speaking on WNBF Radio’s Binghamton Now program, Lupardo said while scrubbers or some type of equipment was being used at the site, “something’s not going right” on the weekends.

Lupardo said she wants the area checked to try to ascertain what’s causing the unpleasant odor.

The assemblywoman said she also wants the Department of Environmental Conservation to put into writing its assertion that no Pennsylvania gas drilling waste that was brought to an upstate landfill was being shipped to Endicott for treatment.

Lupardo said the “DEC swears that that’s not the case.” She said she wants that verified because “there’s a trust gap” among some of her constituents.
