People in California like to brag about what great weather and little rain they get, but to me that's just less opportunity for nature to do it's thing. On my visits to L.A. and San Francisco, I've often thought they are both dirty probably because they don't get rain frequently enough to wash away the grime.

Chicago is not a smelly city, but if you cross some of those bridges over the river....yuckk. I remember walking over one in the middle of winter with the wind blowing like crazy and the entire time I was on the bridge it felt like someone with a spray bottle full of 2 week old urine was spraying me in the face. I almost puked.

Driving anywhere through the central valley of CA around Bakersfield and such smells like a bag full of methane straight from a cows ass.

Do you have a link?

There are many channels, locks, etc. that allow the city to empty parts of the river in January to clean the river. Much of the stuff they find is from visitors from Houston who throw/drop things in the water.

The water flows all the way to Matagorda Bay, next to the Gulf.
