There are two prevalent odor issues in Milpitas:
1. The proximity to the shoreline at the bottom of the tip of the bay,
2. The waste treatment facility.
Iâ€™ve smelled both of these on various occasions close to I-880, but the further east you go, the less chance there is of any prevailing odors.
The builder has a copy of the Natural Hazard disclosure which you can get by asking them.
Iâ€™d recommend you have a Realtor represent you â€“ since you are asking for this information in this forum from Realtors, imagine how helpful an experienced Realtor can be on other issues pertaining to the purchase of a new home. Weâ€™re represented many buyers purchasing new homes, and theyâ€™ve been very happy with the results.
As for a waste treatment facility in Newark as suggested by Tina, there isnâ€™t one.
