Council Spraying To Cover Up Bad Smells

Bad smell

Townsville City Council crews are out on Tuesday and Wednesday trying to rid the community of bad smells brought on by the floods.

They are using an environmentally friendly spray to reduce smells from waterways, stormwater drains and silted streets.

Areas in Idalia, Rosslea and Annandale will be prioritised. Council crews will continue to assess flood-affected areas and will move the spray truck to other areas as required.

The spray is environmentally friendly and uses beneficial microbes to suppress odour, improve water quality and reduce the risk of algal blooms.

The microbes work by accelerating natural processes to break down pollutants into harmless natural compounds and reduce odour.
