SLUDGE VICTIMS

STATEMENT BY Edward McCloskey

who went to her house at 582 Birch Run Road, Snow Shoe, Pa. 16874 to check out her sludge problem:

"It seem that they were spreading sludge right behind her house and she said that the smell was so bad that it was making everyone in that area very ill. So I told her that I would stop after work to see for myself. When I got there, I couldn't smell anything. But as evening came, the air began to settle around her home and other homes which are in a valley right below the site.

I started to smell something but it smelled like a dead animal and I said, "is this what you're smelling? They said yes but that was mild compared to what it smelled like earlier. Then it came. It was so bad that it made me gag and almost puke. I couldn't believe it! It didn't go away either. It didn't smell like sewage. It smelled like a million of dead animals that had been in the hot sun for a month. I had never smelled anything like that before.

My wife was in the car and it made her gag also. It's a shame that people have little or no rights when it comes to this and I really feel bad for the people who live there. I know that if it ever does come to Burnside Township, I will move and not take the chance of it harming my family.
