SYRACUSE, Utah (AP) -- A sewer treatment plant in Syracuse has some residents trying their best not to breathe through their noses. The reason? They say it stinks.

The North Davis Sewer District Board is receiving an increasing number of complaints from residents about the odor.

The district is awaiting a two-month study to determine what it can do to minimize the odor complaints. Board members say they are concerned because the increasing number of complaints coincides a decision to expand the treatment plant to accommodate growth in north Davis County and Roy. The district serves about 180,000 residents and is spending $80 million to expand the plant.
