The Missoulian is reporting that since May 30, the local Health Department has received more than 30 complaints of an odor coming from railroad tracks. Enough complaints that the Health Department is declaring it a public nuisance. While a source of the odors has not been officially determined, a possible source is thought to be Emerald Services, which performs oil recycling in the area. In response to the complaints it hired an engineering firm to investigate the smell.
I do not currently represent anyone in Montana. I have represented over a thousand similarly situated people around the country in various odor nuisance and environmental litigation. I am currently representing over 700 people in a case against Cedar Grove Composting, an Emerald Services company in Washington.
