Milk cooperative, neighbors to meet to discuss odors

October 05, 1995|By Ivan Penn | Ivan Penn,SUN STAFF

State Sen. Martin G. Madden and officials from the Maryland-Virginia Milk Producers Cooperative will meet with North Laurel residents Wednesday to discuss recent runoff problems and odors emitted by the plant.

When workers clean trucks at the milk plant, the runoff flows into the nearby Hammond Branch. Residents have complained to Mr. Madden that strong odors from the runoff waft into their yards.

Mr. Madden, a Republican representing East Columbia, Jessup and North Laurel, and officials from the plant will discuss steps that could be taken to correct the problem.

Last June, officials at the plant said during a public hearing with the Maryland Department of the Environment that they were working to reduce odors.

The meeting will be at 7 p.m. at Hammond Elementary School.
