Portland Business Journal reports that residents living in the Overlook neighborhood have often complained of paint smells they believe come from the Daimler Trucks North America's Western Star truck plant. Overlook is a neighborhood located in Swan Island, Oregon.
Neighbors for Clean Air (NCA), a Portland-based group that has fought to reduce odors and pollution at Daimler has concerns about Daimler being given low priority under the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) plan. Oregon’s DEQ adopted air nuisance rules in 2001, and has put odor prevention requirements into permits since then but the agency declined to enforce them, citing the lack of a uniform statewide policy.
I do not currently represent anyone at this site. I have represented over a thousand similarly situated people around the country in various odor nuisance cases. To find out how The Simon Law Firm can help, contact environmental attorney Todd Hageman.
