OREM, Utah (AP) - The city of Orem reportedly is getting closer to solving a stinky problem that’s costing thousands of dollars to clean up so far.

The Daily Herald reports that a larger than normal dumping was left to muck up the sewer system just three days before Christmas.

The dumping is preventing workers from doing other tasks that help the sewer system stay in good working condition.

City officials say trained technicians are relegated to clean-up duty.

The dumping is a class B misdemeanor and fines are $1,000 a day.

City officials say they believe that through several tests, they’ve narrowed the substance down to particulates found in a form of insulation.

Now they’re searching for where it’s coming from, who is dumping it and why they are doing it.
