If you experience sewer odor problems in your house, pour two to three gallons of water slowly down the floor drain in the basement. This will refill the P-trap which is intended to block sewer odors from entering the house from the service line. Open windows to vent the effected area. If the odor does not dissipate within several hours, call the Wastewater Division at 720-898-7770 between 7:00am and 3:30pm, Monday through Friday, or 720-898-7820 after hours, holidays and weekends. Crews will be dispatched to investigate. If you have further questions please submit a service request.
