State tries anew to cut NYOFCo's stench

Under a cloud of uncertainty about its future following the loss last month of its contract with the city, the embattled sewage-to-fertilizer company NYOFCo now faces a new challenge: around-the-clock scrutiny of its odor by an independent team of engineers.

But at a public meeting at the Point CDC on April 29, skeptical residents and advocates angrily questioned the engineers and state officials about the new strategy.

The state Department of Environmental Conservation imposed the new requirement on NYOFCo, making it pay for monitors who will measure the smells within a mile of the plant on Oak Point Avenue.

Opponents of NYOFCo said awful smells reach far beyond that area, and objected that no public outreach has been planned to alert the community to the new way to complain.
