The Daily Sentinel reports Whitewater, Colo., residents are calling for an end to foul odors from two evaporation ponds at the Deer Creek wastewater treatment facility. Resident Rhea Garvey said the odors can be detected outside the Deer Creek property lines, in violation of the company’s conditional-use permit. Whitewater residents also dispute the odors are coming from other nearby sources, such as a hog farm and sewage field. Garvey said, “We know what that smells like and this isn’t that.” Whitewater Community Alliance, a group of concerned residents, have called on the county to ensure the odors do not return in the spring, to prohibit further development on the site, and to require a full payment on a bond to ensure cleanup and to require full-time monitoring of the facility.
