Contact numbers from Odor Meeting

Meeting Re: South Louisville Odor Issues

Councilman Dan Johnson is holding a meeting now scheduled Monday @ 6pm at Olmsted Academy North – 530 Bellevue Avenue. Meeting was Rescheduled due to possible weather on saturday.
All parties from the city, Fed EPA, MSD and Nuplex will be there to discuss the neighborhood odor problem and its resolution . If you want to share your long standing problems with odor from this company, please attend and voice them. It sounds like they may be looking at this as a one-time occurrence which it most definitely is not.

Chemical Odors

The following is from Jeff Miller – BNA President, if you have an interest send  email to bmont@beechmont.org and I’ll add you to the list. The federal EPA is investigating this as well as the City Environmental Dept and MSD.
