WCPO.com is reporting that the Ohio EPA recently granted an air permit to the Rumpke Sanitary Landfill in Colerain Township, so they can triple the amount of deodorizer used to contain the odors that residents have been complaining of for years. This is a plan that residents have been against. Residents feel the landfill is not doing anything to fix the cause of the odor, believed to be a disruption that developed in the north end of the landfill in 2008. Rumpke claims the disruption is not fire, and they do not know what causes it. We recently blogged about the request to increase the neutralizer, and have been blogging about this situation for years.
