E-M:/ 90 degrees and stench



Imagine having a choice of suffocating in your house in the heat or leaving windows open so you can become sick with the CAFO stench.  Again, Vreba Hoff and others nearby (go to www.nocafos.org) but we know the same is happening throughout CAFO land.  From nocafos:

May 31 - stench and emissions "horrendous" from CAFOs in this heat (90 degrees, high humidity). "Air stinks" on Packard, south of Vreba-Hoff 1 facility. Liquid manure applications, emissions continue at many locations: Vreba-Hoff at Territorial and US 127 as well as along Ridgeville east of US-127. Bakerlads along Morey Hwy; Marvins at Benner and M-34.

May 30 - strong manure emissions from Bakerlads application along Morey Hwy; also extreme emissions from State Line (neighbors called DEQ PEAS Hotline), with ECCSCM hydrogen sulfide meter registering 3 ppm. Vreba-Hoff also applying near the Ohio border, Territorial and US-127.
