The Smell MyCity website makes smell report data publicly accessible and easy for all residents and community groups to explore.

Announcing a new free app for reporting possible industrial air pollution incidents to Portland Clean Air!
Please help with this launch by downloading the app today and making a smell report- even if the smell report is positive.
Portland Clean Air has been working with Dr. Beatrice Dias from Carnegie Melon University, the developer of the app and Seventh Generation is helping to launch the app city wide.
The Smell MyCity app crowdsources community reports of pollution odors and visualizes our city’s air quality. Please help us with this launch by downloading the app today and making a smell report. Even if your report is an entirely positive one (which we all hope it is!) your report today will help us a lot on the receiving end. This is a better alternative than your complaints being ignored by DEQ or floating around Nextdoor. Portland Clean Air now has a toxic smell response team with monitoring equipment and the data from nine agencies to help pinpoint the source so Portland Clean Air can send in negotiators.
