Can somebody tell me why Bossier City isn't fixing the broken sewer lines or repairing all the natural gas leaks around town?

It smells like DOO DOO at almost every corner along Airline Drive, and there are natural gas leaks are all over the city.

I'm really tired of gagging all the way down the road, and I'm concerned about the possible health problems we're going to see as a result of being exposed to raw sewer and natural gas on a daily basis.

Seems like nobody cares.

Default Smelled something nasty

Was near the Air Force Base (71104) over the weekend. Nice place but that nasty smell was more than I could bare! I assumed it was from the River...

Gets stinky around Red River on Teague Parkway during the summer. I believe this to be a sewer-line issue. City of Bossier had spent considerable money a few years ago studying and trying to remediate the problem. They had a company come in and do some work on the lift stations...not sure exactly what but it seemed to work for a while. Can't answer why it still gets rank. Maybe new sewer upgrades slated in the future will help. Also another problem is drainage ditches that are around Airline which may get sewer run-off from broken / leaky lines and turn foul when the temps rise. If you look around, the city of Bossier is built around a bunch of drainage canals, especially in Bossier proper and North of I-20. These ditches may need upgrades.
