The Port Townsend & Jefferson County Leader reports that odors from a Port Townsend, Oregon paper mill topped concerns for residents at a recent public hearing at which the state Department of Ecology took comments. The president of Port Townsend Paper Corp. was present and took questions as well, denying reports that the paper company falsified its testing results. Residents say the stench and odors have been a problem for at least five years, and that if DOE’s plan to allow the company to continue testing for the source of the odors is approved, the problem will persist until at least 2015.
I do not currently represent anyone at this site. I have represented over a thousand similarly situated people around the country in various odor nuisance cases. We represent hundreds of people in Washington state in two different neighborhoods whose use and enjoyment of their property are being allegedly compromised by foul odors coming from composting at two different composting facilities outside of Seattle.
