Default Village Sewage Treatment Plants Stinks

How do the people who live near Bogart golf course put up with the smell? The one near the RV storage off El Camino is bad but the one off Buena Vista near the Village of Liberty Park is real bad.

My first husband (passed away) was a Wastewater Plant Manager. ALL wastewater facilities have a smell to them!!!!!

I often asked how he could stand the smell. His reply, "What smell?" The staff gets used to the smell after awhile. I never did, having only to visit occassionally.

I would never live near a Wastewater Plant knowing what I know.

Some WWTP's are more stinky than others - depends on how good the equipment and operators are.

Excellent question.

Especially important for those who are thinking of buying a gently used resale home in TV.

Where are these sewer plants and what are they called on the VILLAGES map?

Can anyone give a mapping number so that we can locate them???

My dad worked at a paper mill and smelled like rotten eggs after work. We said, "It smells like money to me."

I understand the smell is due to crappy operations!!

We have friends in Liberty Park and have never noticed a smell. I asked them abut it and they don't smell anything either. The plant is across the street so maybe that makes a difference.
To the OP - did you smell something there?

Looking back on this and similar posts, no one on TOTV has been able to provide a map (or a link to a map) of water/sewer treatment facilities in TV. Is this a secret that only the TV salespeople have the answer to? Please, can someone post some concrete info and a map - thank you.

p.s. please note that I am not debating over whether a certain area stinks or not. I just want a map.

Yes, I have plans to leave Fleming Island. Thanks for caring. Got a map of the water/sewer treatment facilities in TV?
