LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The spirit company cited by Louisville's Air Pollution Control District for causing what is commonly known as whiskey fungus is responding to part of the complaint.

APCD filed a notice of violation in October against Diageo America's Supply Incorporated who runs whiskey warehouses just south of downtown.

Monday, a city spokesperson said Diageo is expected to file a plan to deal with the odor complaints, but wants more time to investigate the other concerns, including the actual fungus allegedly growing on area homes and cars.

APCD said once the plan is submitted, it will need to be reviewed before deciding whether Diageo is in compliance.
