Download the Smell My City App

Click here to download. Then, with just a few taps, record each time you smell something that seems hazardous. Dozens of entries have been made in South Portland since the start of April alone. It's free, easy to use, and the data provides one more means of tracking the impact on our community. This data can then be used to advocate for action by regulatory agencies.
