We previously blogged about noxious odors from the Johnson County Landfill affecting Shawnee, Kansas residents. The Shawnee Dispatch now reports numerous changes have been implemented by city officials and the Johnson County Landfill to remedy the odors. Complaints had reached unprecedented numbers in the latter half of 2015. Since February, when the landfill’s owner Waste Management installed a new gas pipeline, officials say odor complaints have dropped.
Despite the city and landfill working together to remedy the odor nuisance in the future, these measures do not compensate the residents for the loss of use and enjoyment of their properties when the problem was at its worse.
While I do not currently represent anyone involved with this site, I have represented more than 2,000 similarly situated people around the country in various landfill and other odor environmental litigation cases.
