Odor complaints are handled jointly between Code Enforcement and the Lake Stevens Police Department. Officers have been trained by the Puget Clean Air Agency to respond to local odor complaints. It is important to report odor complaints as soon as possible. Odor complaints can be difficult to investigate due to the duration of odor and weather conditions. Documenting odor issues immediately helps staff identify the source of an odor violation and recommend corrective actions for any continuing issues.
If you are experiencing a pervasive noxious or nuisance odor, call the LAKE STEVENS POLICE DEPARTMENT AT 9-1-1 immediately to register odor complaints.
