NJ.com is reporting that Roseland, New Jersey residents have voiced concern and opposition to a natural gas compressor station expansion. Due to foul odors, construction on the station has resulted in children being evacuated from an elementary school, and many residents complained of the odor at a recent town hall meeting. Close to 100 people attended the meeting to express their concerns about the emissions and accompanying odors. The compressor station is located on Eagle Rock Avenue and helps to transport natural gas through a pipeline that runs up the eastern seaboard. It is operated by Williams Transco, of Tulsa, Oklahoma. A citizen action group, Roseland Against the Compressor Station, has been formed. The scent has been likened to rotten eggs.
