• A "little bird" told me that Mr. Alvarez was offered a free trip and lunch to visit the Sugarland palnt to see for himself and he declined. Just wondering.
    Hopefully this will be the "fish or cut bait" portion og the show and the deed will bedone one way or other.

  • The Aftermath
    The constituent states “I don't care how much money you're throwing away, you've got to respect your neighbors. They're expanding into us” “We're not expanding into them."

    The permeating smell is akin to the stench of rotten eggs. It is the smell of hydrogen sulfide, a gas produced by decaying organic matter, such as the wastewater treatment plant.
    Exposure to the gas will cause headaches, fatigue, depression and nausea. It will irritate eyes and cause nerve and respiratory problems. Extremely high levels of hydrogen sulfide in a confined space -- not an outdoor setting -- can cause respiratory failure and death.

    Research reveals a federal study detected a sharp rise in hospital visits on days with high levels of hydrogen sulfide in the air.

    Furthermore extremely high levels of illnesses and cancers have been pointed towards the W.W treatment plants by nearby residents.

    Just ask the residents living near Willow street. They have many complaints about their health in referance to the sewage nearby.

  • Roberttx, yes the council was shown the locations on a map and we went over the pros and cons of each site in detail. I cannot remember exactly when but it was a while back.
