Fairfax says "Stop making our sewers smell like donuts, dammit!" and sues Krispy Kreme
Original GlazedFairfax County, Virginia has sued Krispy Kreme after the company declined to pay a 1.9 million dollar bill for the cost of repairing the county sewer system, which Fairfax says resulted from years of discharging "excessive quantities of highly corrosive wastes, doughnut grease and other pollutants" into the sewer.

I love the complaints that the sewer facility was "permeated by the smell of doughnuts."

Would they prefer the smell sewers usually have?

On the other hand, thinking of all that stuff clogging the sewers makes me glad I am not eating the doughnuts... I don't want that stuff in my arteries.

probably the mention of the odor was more about citing the source of the recent problems than complaining about the nature of the smell.

Interesting. Seems like a place that uses vast quantities of grease would also be using grease * traps *. Just because they're complying with all permits, doesn't mean the compliance rules are up to snuff to begin with. Of course, even if they have grease traps, that doesn't mean the traps are even being used. It ain't cheap to get those things pumped out ! And yeah, yeast can do a number on pipes - once it ferments, it can be n-a-s-t-y !

How many donuts would you have to eat before your feces smelled like donuts? I smell a study at Cornell coming right up!
