So I guess buying a house in Steel Creek would really, uh, stink? I see some ads for it.

If that's the case, you might be getting hit from the smell coming up from Waxhaw too? In addition to the guy who ate the burrito today.

LOL! I can't smell it where I live. Only when driving near it (commercial area) late night/early morning. Waxhaw is about 25 miles away but I think Timm is in the area.

Ah, yes, that would be the waste treatment plant south of Pineville.

Here's an old article, but since this is an ongoing, old problem . . . maybe it will give you some insight about sewage spills and problems we have had in this county . . .

Up S**t Creek | Charlotte | News | News feature

ETA: a more recent 2007 report of what I consider to be an ongoing problem, and I don't believe what city officials have said as to it being resolved. Now, that is my personal opinion - and I think a certain amount of skepticism is a good thing, as this problem has been occurring for a very long time - w/o the public being fully informed of the extent of spills.
