Ok heres what I know.
Dundee cement is closed so thats not the smell anymore from their stacks.
Mathes has a hog farm at M50 and Niemen rd that stinks pretty bad when he spreads manure on the adjacent fields. That's the smell you get there.
Dundee no longer treats their water. They buy it directly from Monroe now.
That building on M50 is not a gas line building. It is the booster pump for city water from Monroe.
Last but not least, Horky's drilled 2 new deep wells to irrigate the 160 acre farm that straddles M50 at Nieman rd and they now irrigate with sulphur water so between the hog manure and the sulphur water for those big irrigation pivots its gonna stink near that area on a regular basis.
Makes sense, but I doubt the Horky's are irrigating anything this time of year. I have smelled the sulfur smell recently, after the crops were harvested. I know it can't be coming from Holcim's stacks, since they are no longer there. But the smell can still come from the pit, if they are still blasting, and extracting limestone. Does anyone know if the pumps have been shut off in the Holcim pit? Or is Stoneco still operating down there, pulling out limestone? Because even when Holcim was making cement, they had a joint venture with Stoneco, in that pit, to mine limestone.
I was just wondering if they still were. If so, that could be a source of the smell. When Holcim was there, I was in that pit, and it STINKS when you get near it.
