According to  residents within a several mile radius of hydrolic fracking in Hart, Michigan are having to deal with the rotten egg odor of hydrogen sulfide on their property.  The gas escaped when workers with Alta Resources, LLC switched pipes and gathered flowback fluid from the well. The story quotes a DEQ official as saying “It’s our opinion that while the public’s health was not in danger, citizens … were dealing with a rotten egg odor.” That may be true, but the odor threshold for hydrogen sulfide has been reported to be as low as 0.5 parts per billion which is well below the acute health risk level but still high enough for some to find offensive.

Zakariah Johnson represents individuals and communities who have lost the use and enjoyment of their properties due to noxious odors and has represented thousands of individuals subjected to hydrogen sulfide gas. To find out if we can help please fee free to contact us at 904-553-7193 or
