New filter fix for Owl?s Head plant stench

BAY RIDGE - New filters are sucking up the stinky smell coming from a Brooklyn treatment plant.

The Department of Environmental Protection installed two new carbon filters, which it says will suck up the stench coming from the Owl's Head Wastewater Treatment Plant. The filters are the latest in a series of attempts made by the city to solve the situation. Since 2006, crews have installed a variety of covers to seal off the smell.

The commissioner of the DEP reassures residents that this will reduce the odor, but admits they?ll have to wait and see what the impact will be.
