Officials with Republic Services say the smell at Bridgeton will get worse before it gets better.
Monday's rain pushed back the start of work to remove sections of concrete pipe in the landfill. Engineers say the pipe removal will make the ground in and around the landfill safer, but the smell will be worse while work is underway.
The project was initially supposed to be completed on April 30, but with rain forecast through Thursday, it is still unclear when work will get underway. Contractors and company officials will meet midweek to discuss a starting date.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The federal Social Security Administration now says that its investigators were not able to read an electronic list of concealed gun permit holders from Missouri.
In an email Monday, a spokesman for the federal agency says it distributed incorrect information last week when it said the disk was read before it was destroyed. The agency's retraction came after Missouri Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer held a news conference Monday recounting what he had been told about the disk by the agency's inspector general.
The miscommunication highlights the confusion about an issue that has been a growing concern among Republican lawmakers. They fear gun owners' privacy rights were violated when the Missouri State Highway Patrol provided the list of permit holders to a federal investigator.
