The News Advance reports despite increased spending to control odors from the Livestock Road Regional Landfill, the odor problem remains. The article discusses a report from SCS Engineering which states the level of hydrogen sulfide in the air is “a third of Environmental Protection Agency limits.” What the article does not say is rotten egg odors from hydrogen sulfide have a low odor threshold. Therefore, even below EPA limits, people can still smell the noxious rotten egg odors and suffer symptoms such as burning eyes, runny nose and/or nausea. We previously blogged that as a result of resident complaints of the odors, legislation is going to be introduced to control odors related to landfills in residential neighborhoods.
While I do not currently represent anyone involved with this site, I have represented more than 2,000 similarly situated people around the country in various landfill and other odor environmental litigation cases.
