Autumn Hughes reports: An odor monitoring system at the Bradley County Landfill is closer to installation  if sites for monitoring equipment can be secured.

Bradley County Road Superintendent Sandra Knight, who has been tasked with overseeing the system, told the Bradley County Commission’s Road Committee Monday that the weather tower is on landfill property.

In addition, one monitoring station will go behind the Road Department office, and the contract for another one closer to the landfill has been signed.

However, two other property owners for whom Knight had prepared contracts later decided against allowing their property to be used.

The equipment is part of a plan the commission approved earlier this year to monitor noxious odors rising from the landfill. The decision to install monitoring equipment came after months of residents near the landfill complaining about the smell.
