IT MAY NOT smell like a rose, but a New York City sewage plant is offering tours for lovers on Valentine’s Day.

The tour host and superintendent of the Newtown Creek Wastewater treatment plant in Brooklyn tells the Daily News it’ll be a unique date, and one that special someone will never forget.

Jim Pynn says the highlight of the tour will be the plant’s giant egg-shaped digesters, which break down the noxious waste into harmless sludge and gas.

Pynn says each Valentine’s Day visitor will also get a Hershey’s Kiss chocolate — and at least something to talk about.
