Many people may have been smelling something like rotten eggs Friday morning.

According to the Marion Fire Department, the smell is believed to be coming from the water pollution plant at 7525 Bertram Road.

The fire department said the smell could be confused for a gas leak.

"A light wind out of the SE and heavy atmospheric conditions appear to be once again bringing the plant’s normal operating odors to Marion’s city limits," the fire department said in a release.

Fire officials said the outdoor smell is not a concern, but if anyone smells something similar inside a structure to call 911.
