More about the Foul Smell in Crockett, CA

On October 7, 2022, Contra Costa Health warned those living near the Crockett Wastewater Treatment Plant of concerning levels of hydrogen sulfide gas in the air. The Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) reportedly performed the air quality test as a result of complaints of foul-smelling odor. Some reports indicate local residents complained about the smell several weeks before the October 7th test was conducted.

According to the media release by Contra Costa Health, levels of hydrogen sulfide in the air were high enough to cause headaches, nausea, and irritated eyes. Contra Costa Health advised residents experiencing symptoms to leave the area or go inside and close all doors and windows.

On October 12, Inframark, the contractor operating the Crockett Wastewater Treatment Plant, reportedly announced that the plant would begin cleaning the air diffusers in the wastewater treatment reactors and upgrade the blowers to help the smell dissipate.
