Plastic Odor from Village Parkway Construction

Post Date:08/08/2017

Residents and businesses in central Dublin may notice a plastic smell in the air on Tuesday (August 8) and Thursday (August 10) afternoons. The odor comes from the styrene resin in the pipe liner that DSRSD is installing in the sewer main under Village Parkway.
