This is not a legal question. I need to know how to get rid

This is not a legal question. I need to know how to get rid of the "latrine" smell outside my house. I have been having construction done & discovered this problem.

Rick :

Welcome, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to help you with your issue

Where is this odor coming from? I need you to be more specific than just outside your house

Rick :

do you have a septic system or city sewerage?

Customer: City sewage. Let me be clear....workers have been relieving themselves in bushes next to house.
Customer: I am a monthly subscriber to Just Answer.
Rick :

Ok, if that's the source of the odor then your best option is to spread (agricultural) lime on the ground where it stinks. The powdered form is most effective in neutralizing odors

Customer: Thank you.
