Intermittent sewage/drain smell outside

Every so often for the last year or more, I detect a smell of sewage or drains and when I open the front or back doors, there is usually a strong smell outside. Not sure if the smell is wafting over from a sewage works somewhere, or coming up from the main street drain just outside our house. The smell is around even when I walk down the road, so I don't think it's coming from our house drains.
