We lived in the neighborhood beside Crystal Lake from 1998-2007. Not always, but sometimes, during late afternoon and evenings, especially during hot weather, a foul smell reached through Crystal Lake and all the way into our neighborhood. We never smelled it from inside our house but it was noticeable when outside. Our real estate agent discouraged us from buying a house in that neighborhood for that very reason; however, we didn't listen to him. We loved our neighborhood and the smell was never a big enough issue to change our minds. If you like the neighborhood, go for it.
