Gas smell from ocean returns to Encinitas

Three years ago, a massive cloud of gas stench covered the western part of Encinitas and Solana Beach.

We've recently noticed brief wafts of the same smell occasionally while at or near the beach, and Encinitas Undercover has had a recent spate of hits from people Googling "Encinitas gas smell" or similar.

The fact that this keeps happening in the heat of mid-summer lends credence to our "Don't panic - it's organic" theory.

  1. Lots of comments on Facebook. Sounds like it was mostly in Cardiff area. Didn't detect anything down here by Moonlight Beach.

  2. Nor here in Leucadia. But I think its jet fuel being dumped from above. That stuff smell just like kerosene. (Not much into the chem-trails theory). Stop by my shop and compare the smell to a kerosene lamp I have. Then buy something, don't be cheap!! ;)

    1. There is a sewage pumping station at the corner of B St. and 2nd - that emits some nasty stench odors....

  4. By guess is that it was Muir passing gas on his daily walk.

    2. No one cares about your typo except that loser who has nothing original or of value to add to a post except grammar mom crap.

      Its a blog not a published document.

    4. 5.56 I don't care about your typo either. "Its" is spelled it's if you want to look intelligent. Easy to blame others when you do the same thing. Love that karma.

  5. The north end of Leucadia at the lagoon has a sewage station too. That place gets rank a lot. I can't imagine a 5 star Hilton next to it. Maybe that's why they named it Noah's Ark.

  6. I smelled it Sunday afternoon in Cardiff across the tracks in front of the state park. At first I thought it was a gas leak inside the house, but the odor wasn't quite right. I went outside and could smell it. Definitely not a kerosene smell. More like sewer gas. It didn't last long and was soon overpowered by barbecue smells from the park.

  8. Its the smell of DEBT…. reeking after a rotten action of borrowing $13,000,000 dollars for a $4 million piece of property and a ridiculous life guard tower.

    Encinitas need to get some sense. Next step - Stop the construction of the $ 3 million dollar life guard tower. Don't build permanent structures on our beaches!!

    1. Source of the stench - CITY HALL!

  9. The stench is the rotting corpse of Encinitas's quaint, small town atmosphere.

  10. 5:59, They're rebuilding a permanent structure on the beach. Problem is, they have to leave 50% of the old one.
