Strange Odor Detected on West Side of Silver Lake Reservoir
Updated: Feb 22, 2022
For the last few months, residents and visitors have noticed an offensive odor near the south dam entrance on the west side of the reservoir. Some residents were so concerned that they asked the Southern California Gas Company (SCG) to inspect their homes. Fortunately, no irregularities were found, but SCG confirmed a smell. Although inspectors determined it did not smell like gas to them, residents are asking: could it be methane or some other dangerous substance? Representatives from the LADWP and Council District 13 have been notified and an investigation has been initiated. SLT will keep our readers posted.
