Thank 100 Women For New Odor Reporting System

100 Women Northville

We  received $13,150 from 100 Women Who Care – Northville  in December 2017. We’re using the funds to build a web-based odor reporting system.

The system will streamline the reporting process, validate the number of reports, the time and severity of the odors. We will own the data so we can use it to build our case against the expansion and the mismanagement of Arbor Hills Landfill.

It’s clear to us that all odor reports are not counted or even taken seriously with the current reporting process. With our web-based system, we hope to build metrics that will compel the EPA to take stronger action regarding the mismanagement of the dump. And, of course, our top priority is to prevent the massive expansion.

We issued an RFP and selected a local tech firm to build the odor complaint system. We don’t have a name for the system yet. Send suggestions to info@theconservancyinitiative.org.
