Officials investigating strange smell at campground

Officials are trying to determine the source of an offensive odor coming from the Mendenhall Lake Campground.

Initial testing indicates the smell is not coming from a toxic source, including sewage. But other tests are planned, according to a release from the National Forest Service, which manages the campground.

The Forest Service is working with the City and Borough of Juneau and the State Department of Environmental Conservation to identify the cause of the funky fragrance.
