Odor survey monitoring is performed at least three times a day, seven days a week at random times in the morning, afternoon and evening. We are working with environmental specialists from a local Dayton consulting firm, LJB Inc., who are conducting the surveys.
You may see the vehicle in your community as they are performing surveillance. The vehicle is equipped with a flashing light that will be turned on to alert drivers that they are moving slowly and when they pull over to record a surveillance point.
A network of survey points is in place where at each survey point, any odors detected from Stony Hollow Landfill or nearby off-site sources will be recorded. Weather conditions are also noted including temperature and wind direction. Each odor surveillance record is maintained for agency inspection.
