If you've noticed an odor hanging over Rockford lately, you're not alone.

So what's that smell?


A Reddit User named, 90sRnBMakeMeHappy, posed a question to the forum about the nasty sulfur smell lingering around the East State and Mulford area.

Have you noticed that smell?

I can say that I have. It was in a weird place I normally don't smell that sulfur like, almost rotten lunch meat smell and it was at the Mulford and Sandy Hollow Road area. I thought it odd, because I typically notice that smell near the dump on 251, not there. It was really weird.

Now I read this and see it's lingering in other places too in rockford.

So what could it be?

Does anyone know the real reason for that awful stench that almost makes you want to vomit when it hits your nostrils? It's just nasty.
