Something smells weird in Sumner... and here's why.
A reader asked Bonney Lake-Sumner Patch the following question via Facebook:
I have a question-what is the cause of the stench along 410 through the Sumner valley? It smells like a sewer main broke! Anyone know?
I asked Carmen Palmer, head of communications for Sumner, if she knew what was up. Palmer responded:
She smelled a strong smell of manure, not sewer. It’s the routine manure spreading in the fields south of town. Ever since they switched from chemicals to all-natural products, it’s increased the scent quite a bit.
We think a little stench is well worth fresh manure on the local land!
