Air-monitoring devices are in place at landfill

Posted 12/19/11

JOHNSTON – Rhode Island officials have installed air-monitoring equipment near the Central Landfill in Johnston to measure gases believed to be causing noxious odors, The Associated Press reported last week.

The R.I. Department of Environmental Management said the monitor was installed this month to help gauge the level of the odor problem.

Residents have complained for several weeks about a rotten-egg smell that can be detected miles away. Complaints also have come from Attleboro, the AP said.

Johnston Mayor Joseph Polisena says he intends to file a lawsuit against the landfill seeking damages for the odor, the AP said. •
