FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - Operators of a dog food plant in Flagstaff have come up with a plan to keep the neighborhood from smelling.

The Arizona Daily Sun reports (https://bit.ly/1sTb70a ) that representatives from Nestle Purina commissioned a $120,000 study to find a way to reduce the aroma of dog food that permeates the southeast part of the city near the plant. Officials told the City Council on Tuesday that they have found a way to reduce the smell by 70 percent within four years of construction.

Factory manager Amy Kerr says the smell is escaping the plant through exhaust stacks but that it could be contained through about $2.9 million of construction.

Residents near the plant say the smell can be overpowering, especially on hot days, but that their dogs don’t seem to mind.
