bad smell from sump pump

we had water coming in our basement thru a crack in a outside wall then it started coming up thru the floor. we had the crack in the wall fixed from the outside and a sump pump installed. before the sump pump was installed we noticed a bad smell only when the water would come up thru the floor. After the sump pump was install we called our city and they came out and used a camera in the sewer lines to check for a break in the sewer line. Lucky there were not breaks, but the smell is still here sometimes stronger then others. I tryed the whole beach thing with no luck. It does smell like sewer but again there are no breaks in our line. Any help would be great!!! Thanks
