HOUSTON – It looks like the city of Houston has one smelly problem on its hands.

The heavy rains from the weekend flooded sewers causing gallons of untreated waste to be dumped into parts of Downtown.

Public Works officials say the spill has since been contained, but they say they're monitoring the water supply system.

Workers are also cleaning and disinfecting affected areas with chlorine.
