Quote: "Laura Young Mohr, spokeswoman for the Columbus water division, said the smell is caused by the summer heat raising the temperature of the top 15 to 25 feet of water. 'This isolates the colder bottom water from the surface water that has been heated by sunlight. Bacteria in the colder bottom water slowly consume the dissolved oxygen and convert sulfate to the hydrogen sulfide gas,' she said. That’s where the stink comes from."

2016-09-24 - Hydrogen sulfide leaking from wastewater plant in South Abington Township, Lackawanna County (Pennsylvania):

Quote: "The smell is hydrogen sulfide, a gas produced from the breakdown of organic matter. The gas, poisonous in high concentrations but not dangerous once exposed to open air, must be vented for the safety of authority employees, Ms. Elliott said."

Note: Oh yeah? Tell that to the 29-year-old man who was outside in the open air and got gassed to death by hydrogen sulfide along with some of his cows in Amherst (Wisconsin), mentioned in the 2016-09-14 update. It doesn't matter if you're indoors or outdoors - if you're exposed to air that's 0.1% hydrogen sulfide (1 part per thousand) then you can be killed with one breath. Hydrogen sulfide is as deadly as hydrogen cyanide, which is what they use to execute people in gas chambers. In WWI, the British weaponized hydrogen sulfide and used it to kill German soldiers during trench warfare. Obviously, the trenches were out in the open too. That worked well and killed the crap out of German soldiers because as a heavier-than-air gas, hydrogen sulfide hugged the ground and flowed into the trenches and reconcentrated. Of course, sometimes the wind would unexpectedly shift direction...
