SMELLS from dry well?
Posted by Ralph on October 16, 2003 at 10:38:28:
I have a dry well for kitchen and laundry waste. A few months ago I noticed a bad smell when I was near the creek beihind my house. There is a 4-6 in pipe that comes out of the bank of the creek from my yard. For the ten yrs. I have lived in the house nothing has ever come out of that pipe. But when I smelled the odor I walked over to the pipe and there was milky colored, foul smelling water coming out. (My wife was doing laundry at the time). I found out from an old diagram of the yard that tere was a drywell, so I called to have it pumped. It was pumped out but I still have water going into the creek. I don't want to get into trouble with the DAR or anyone. What could the problem be and what should I do?
