Yucca Valley Stinks!!

It is unfortunate that Yucca Valley literally stinks of sewage. Just went to the library and the smell from the Dumosa apartments is overwhelming. It used to be that the Staters near the library and Walmart were the only two places that stunk, now we have three places. I have never been to another town that literally stinks. I am embarrassed to admit that I live in this town. I guess these places have self-contained sewage tretment systems.I can't wait to see how much the processing plant for the sewer system will smell. When the wind blows from the north we will probably be in trouble!
