Hello,

I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.

I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.

A sewer gas can cause various issues of varying severity;

1) There can be inhalation of bacteria which can cause many serious and signficant illness.

2) Sewers have harmful gases, like hydrogen sulphide or carbon mono-oxide; which can even kill. But not necessarily all sewer will emit these gases.

These all can be manifestations of the harmful gases. You should avoid this as this can be hazardous.
