What it Means
Issue: After feedback from Tri-Cities residents that the Tri-City Regional Landfill continues to emit upsetting odors that reach their homes and businesses, Del. Lashrecse Aird (D-63rd) and her aides are investigating whether new legislation could help remedy the issue.
Impact: Ongoing odor issues affect the quality of life of many area residents, but there is little existing regulation of landfill odor. Aird seeks to determine if state law could be an effective tool to minimize landfill smells.
