The Portland Press Herald reports the stench plaguing residents in Arundel, Maine, is coming from a composting facility owned and operated by Dubois Livestock & Excavating, Inc. The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) rules say that compost must be sufficiently cured so it does not create a "nuisance odor." However, the company refused to let officials inspect the site. DEP is determining next steps to get the business into compliance.

I do not currently represent anyone in Maine. I have represented more than 2,000 similarly situated people around the country, including New England, in various odor nuisance litigation. To find out how The Simon Law Firm, P.C. can help, contact environmental attorney Todd Hageman.
