Forget Horner Rd, use Potomac Mills!



Depends on where in Lorton you live. A lot of areas never smell.

I once (and only once) had to take a pickup load of trash to the Lorton Fairfax County landfill. Try it sometime yourself, enduring the smell there is a life-changing experience! [:D]

Keep on sluggin'! [:)]

It's worse if you live near the Woodrow Wilson Bridge near Rt. 1, that's where the Poo Poo Plant lives and man it's worse then the Polution Plant off Rt. 1.

I always thought it was the water treatment plant in Lorton creating that smell. I didn't even know that there was a landfill nearby. I can't imagine living in Lorton, it's always smelly. Yesterday I smelled the same stench coming near the Occoquan, which was weird.

I was wondering what the hell that smell was. I only drive into work maybe twice a week and each afternoon I pick up sluggs. I thought it was one of them. I was going to question one person one day because she kept looking at me like I did it.

The sewer plant isn't usually very smelly. Maybe if you are right near it on route 1, but not all the way to I95.

I agree with Baz about the $700,000 plus houses withing a stones throw of the landfill. I think the developement is Lorton Valley and there is soon to be another. The townhouses start in the high $600s! You get the smell of the landfill and you are downwind of the incinerator!
