ORANGEBURG, Rockland County (WABC) -- Crews in Rockland County are working to address reports of noxious odors coming from a sewage treatment facility.

It's happening at the Rockland County Sewer District plant in Orangeburg.

County officials say the foul odors first started coming from a tank where maintenance was being performed Friday morning. They later emanated from some other processing tanks.

The Sewer District is "making operational adjustments to address the issue," a Rockland County spokesperson said in a statement.

Officials expect the problem to be resolved shortly.
