MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Officials in Lyndonville are hoping they can eliminate odors from the municipal waste treatment plant by installing a special filter, but it could be summer before construction can begin.

Firefighters in the Vermont community say they’re called to the area around the plant for propane leaks several times a year, including last week.

Fire Chief Greg Hopkins says the scent of ammonia can smell much like leaking propane.

Lyndon Municipal Administrator Justin Smith tells the Caledonian Record (https://bit.ly/1K6ExfT ) the town is considering a bio-filter that would consist of a slab of wood chips.

A blower would push air over the chips, which would retain the ammonia smell and purify the air around the plant.

Such a plan would also save money over the use of chemicals.
