Orchard Hill smell investigation continues 2 weeks later

Posted:
CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

School officials are still looking for a cause more than two weeks after an odor at Orchard Hill Elementary made students and staff sick.

School officials are meeting with parents Thursday night to discuss the progress of their investigation.

An industrial hygienist is going through a process of elimination now.

So far, they've checked the HVAC system, looked for roof leaks, and run cameras through sewer lines, but right now the cause is still unknown.

For now the classes affected by the smell have been moved to Bethany Bible Chapel.
