Herald-Star is reporting that until the Jefferson County Board of Health receives a full report of the recent notices of violation at the facility, it will not consider the landfill's request for a 2014 operating license. From September 23 - 25, the OEPA conducted odor surveillance monitoring and found "detectible landfill gas odors" extending up to three miles south and west of the landfill.
We previously blogged that State Court got involved and ordered the landfill to stop accepting solid waste and to remove or curtail leachate and odor at the site.
We are currently representing over 100 Ohio residents in an odor nuisance lawsuit in New Lexington, Ohio. While I do not currently represent anyone in Steubenville, Ohio, I have a national practice and represent hundreds of hundreds of people similarly situated throughout the United States, who have suffered from odor issues from various sources.
