Unless the walls were odor proof, the smell would just go around them. Take some putty or caulking and seal the ring around the removable lid and also fill the lift hole. Then the odors will not be able to escape from the manholes.

: I live at the bottom of a hill. In the middle of that hill are 2 smelly manholes, within about 100 ft. of one another. When the wind is right, I can clearly smell sewer gas from my front porch.

: Is it the City's responsibility to fix this problem? Could they build a wall between me home and these 2 manholes, or is there nothing we can do but move out?
