Cleanup at the Bourne Landfill in Bourne Massachusetts causing increased odors

We have been blogging about problems regarding the Bourne Landfill for over a year. The Cape Cod Times is reporting that efforts to continue cleanup of the Bourne Landfill after a years-long hiatus is leading to the return of the horrible rotten egg odors of hydrogen sulfide throughout nearby residences. While high levels of hydrogen sulfide can cause various health problems, low levels cause a noxious odor similar to that of rotten eggs, and can be a nuisance to residents, even if they live miles from the landfill.

The work done to clean up the landfill and add additional pipes for landfill gas collection will create unavoidable odors because the digging involved will release trapped gasses. However, current landfill engineering techniques exist to minimize the odors outside of the landfill.

While I do not currently represent anyone in Bourne, Massachusetts, we currently represent many families in nearby Newburyport, Massachusetts in a lawsuit against the owners of the Crow Lane Landfill, for their failure to mitigate excessive odors. To find out if The Simon Law Firm can help with an environmental lawsuit, contact Todd Hageman. Consultations are free of charge.
