    As for the wastewater treatment plant, there is no reason for a wastewater treatment plant to smell if it is designed and operated properly. Sometimes, the plants are poorly designed and there is little the operators can do. Sometimes, the designs are too sophisticated and the operators can't really run them correctly. My professional opinion is that the existing plant is ill designed and needs an upgrade. I've designed and built over a billion dollars worth of these facilities in my lifetime (actually around $1,200,000,000 worth). I would LOVE to work for Aruba to resolve the problem....it would be my dream job
    Got a septic cleaning truck here that has on the side "Smells like money to me."

    Probably no problems getting a Palapa on the smelly days.

    Is the odor coming from the hotel or is the odor coming from the sewage plant?

    you must have missed the posting lisa
    the infrequent stench in the area of lacabana and amsterdam manor is from the SEWERAGE TREATMENT facility located on a side road perpendicular east of Amsterdam Manor.

    there is sometimes a smell in the divi village and links from a wet sewer that sometimes is might not be properly filtered.
