Regarding Improperly Maintained Landfills
When landfills are not properly maintained, it can result in a release of noxious gases into the air—something that can cause both physical reactions in nearby residents, as well as odor nuisance.
Most commonly, the gas released from the landfill or composting facility is methane, which is odorless and potentially explosive. Another common gas released is hydrogen sulfide which smells like rotten eggs. It also has a low odor threshold, meaning its scent can be detected at levels that are not considered to be toxic.
People who are exposed to hydrogen sulfide can suffer from symptoms such as:
- Running and bloody noses
- Difficulty breathing
Experience. Dedication. Results.
At The Simon Law Firm, P.C., we have offered legal counsel to homeowners nationwide who have suffered from living near an improperly maintained landfill or composting facility. We have seasoned litigators who represent cases around the U.S. from our central office in St. Louis, Missouri.
In these environmental law cases, we alleged that the improper maintenance of the landfill caused the air to be polluted with the following:
- Hydrogen sulfide
- Sulfur dioxide
- Carbon monoxide
In these cases, we claimed that such pollution resulted in various respiratory symptoms in nearby residents, as well as odors that made it impossible for them to go outside and enjoy their homes.
