Painting Over The Problem

BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) -- Officials hope a giant mural featuring a seascape of whales, sailboats and a pier will dress up a sewage plant near the Georgia coast, but they acknowledge that the smell remains an issue.

The new mural is being painted on the Brunswick-Glynn County Joint Water and Sewer Commission's Academy Creek treatment plant in Brunswick.

Commission member Bob Coleman tells The Florida Times-Union (http://bit.ly/KyBIYX) that the smell from the plant has been terrible. However, he said recently installed odor control equipment appears to be working and is making a difference. He said it monitors the odor level at the plant and releases chemicals when needed.

Bob Henry of B an' K Graphics in Puyallup, Wash., won the $40,000 contract for the mural after there were no local bidders.
