Strange smell disturbs residents from Snohomish to Woodinville

What is that strange smell in the air from Snohomish to Woodinville?

It's not a good smell, and it's been making residents sick for a week.

Jennifer Price lives in Snohomish Highlands and tells KING 5 the smell is almost too much to handle.

"It's overwhelming. It's just awful," says Price. "It makes your eyes burn."

The Puget Sound Clean Air Agency confirms they've received a number of complaints about the big stink, and they're investigating.

King County says the smell is not related to the new Brightwater wastewater facility that will begin operation later this month.
