(Salt Lake City-AP) -- There's a bad odor wafting around near Salt Lake City's airport, and environmental officials are trying to figure out just what's causing it.
The smell is sometimes so bad that people have gone home sick from work at nearby businesses.
And NO, it's not coming from that salty and strong-smelling lake just to the north. Larry Dunn, director of the National Weather Service office at the airport, says it's more of a chemical odor. The smell mysteriously comes and goes and its source has proven impossible to pin down so far.
Brad Johnson, director of the state Division of Environmental Response and Remediation, says his workers are monitoring the air and awaiting test results that hopefully will provide some answers.
