We have been blogging about the noxious off-site odor concerns residents have about the Bridgeton Sanitary Landfill. The St. Louis Post Dispatch is reporting that regulators from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources has begun testing the air quality around the landfill. The DNR has also ordered Republic Services, Inc. to pay for the testing. This follows the St. Louis County Health Department conducting their annual compliance inspection of the landfill and measuring odors in excess of limits and issuing a notice of violation.
KMOV continues to report about the concerns residents have about the continuing off-site odors. Tony Forster, a resident who lives a few hundred yards from the landfill, describes the smell as being “in between like a skunk and rotten food.”
We are closely watching this situation. I have represented over a thousand similarly situated people around the country in various odor nuisance and environmental litigation regarding landfills, and I am located in St. Louis, Missouri. To find out if The Simon Law Firm can help with an environmental lawsuit, contact environmental attorney Todd Hageman.
