The state Department of Environmental Quality office in Cadillac is home to more than a dozen thick files on WRS, documents sprinkled with graphic complaints from plant neighbors.
One woman called DEQ in mid-September to report odors so bad her children couldn't wait outside for the school bus. Others describe it as a "dead animal" smell.
DEQ officials termed the odor "overwhelming" when they inspected the plant a week after the November lagoon breach.
"It smelled like vomit," DEQ's Janice Heuer said in a Nov. 15 report.
