LOWELL, MICH. - Operators for a Lowell energy plant say their $200,000 project could be the solution to the stench in the city.
Three weeks ago, Lowell Energy AD suspended most of its operation to figure out what was causing the smell. The biodigester plant converts farm and food waste into electricity.
The company has until November 1 to fix the issue, but all residents are holding their breath.
"We’ve been dealing with this for so long, I don’t believe they know exactly what’s wrong with it," Lowell resident Pamela Krzysik said. "I know they brought in some experts. I’m hopeful but I don’t think it’s going to happen."
But company officials are confident their latest attempt at mitigating the foul odor will work.
