Residents Report ‘Strong Odor’ in Parts of Sugar Land

(SUGAR LAND) – City of Sugar Land officials have responded after receiving numerous reports of strong odors in parts of Sugar Land on Monday morning, March 20.

City officials say the Sugar Land Fire Department-EMS has driven to areas where the reports originate but have been unable to locate anything that is causing the smell.

“Based on the current wind direction and speed, we believe the odor originated from a location outside of Sugar Land,” officials said. “We continue to engage other jurisdictions and emergency managers to determine if we can identify the source. In addition, all TCEQ, EPA, and regional air monitors are reporting within normal ranges. The EPA air quality index (AQI) measuring ozone and particulate matter in Sugar Land is currently being reported as ‘good.’”

Officials said staff will continue to monitor the situation.
