I live off of Higby Road. The manure smell that is strong enough to choke a horse has been even worse these past few days and nights. Does anyone know where this is coming from? It is all over Ridgewood, Higby, and beyond. I'd like to believe that it is coming from a farm, but I really have no idea.

We apologize, it's coming from Gilmore Village. We have a lot of human waste there.

I live on Mohawk street between Roberts road and Sessions Road. The smell has been strong here also. I am used to it as we have farmland in this area. However I really haven't smelt it the last few years. This is the first in quite awhile. It was really bad when the Collins farm on Elm Street Chadwicks sprayed the liquid manure. We couldn't go outside or open windows for days. Even our car that was in the garage with no windows open would smell when we got in it. Not sure where this is coming from.

it's coming from Collin's Farm on Elm street, in Chadwicks. Liquified Manure.

I know what you mean. It is that strong down here off of Higby. Forget about getting a breath of fresh air. I'm sorry but after not being able to open a window for years, that needs to be regulated or stopped all together. It is a public nuisance and major air polluter. It must affect kids and adults with asthma and other lung diseases as well.

I was on Genesee St in South Utica yesterday and the stench was so awful I almost threw up. I honestly feel sorry for people who live near the polluting farm. Aren't there are restrictions on this kind of thing?

The smell is also known more clinically as "Central New York Breath" and affects 96% of all urchins living in the New Hartford and Utica/Marcy area. It goes away when they close their mouths.

Prolly one of the local dairys spreading liquid manure on hay fields. The ground has been wet all year and now its dry enough for them to get heavy tankers on the fields to get rid of it. Normallythe spreading is done in the spring and fall but it was too wet this spring

Yep. Definitely Collins. They have the tanks right there, and don't personally give a rats ass what their neighbors say or think. after all as Ed says "we were here first."
They've always had a dairy farm, but really have got into this liquid manure heavily in the past 10 years

It is time to put your disgust of this into action. Contact the EPA, your senator, congressman and tell them what a health hazard, environmental danger and general nuisance this is and ask their help in stopping it. You can send the same e-mail or letter to all of them. You can even call. All their contact info is online. If they get enough complaints from the area, they will investigate it and believe me, there is enough cause here to get Collins to curb the use of that offensive crap. You've got nothing to lose. Maybe some environmental action group will look into it as well. He's probably polluting wells and waterways well beyond any acceptable level.
