No smell? Next time you're in a packed elevator, I suggest you fart and ask everyone else's opinion on the matter.

Oh yes it does . We had a problem in our house and did not know what the smell was until a plumber came and said we had been breathing in Methane gas. We had to have our plumbing in the basement redone and properly vented. We were constantly getting sick and having upper repsiratory infections.

Thank you all in advance,

Yes, in the summer, its pretty ripe. They have a sign out there that says building materials only or something like that, and that may be all they take now, but what they took before hand, who knows. Who also knows what people mix in with the building materials.

Also remember its on a hill, so if you're looking at a home below it (there is a development across from there being built), who knows what may get into the water.

No, that comes from the garbage truck wash facility across the street from the 7-11. A few times I go in that parking lot, that smell has made me almost throw up.

Actually methane is a colorless and odorless gas. Any smell coming from methane is other gases mixed with it.

Commercial methane adds a foul smelling chemical to it before its used.

As for us farting and releasing methane, its other gases that make our farts stink.
