People have complained about Mark's smelly conditions off and on for some time.

I could only imagine those festering conditions at Mark's tarnished our views of a Biodigester ! And rightfully so!

If the lagoons WHERE CONSISTENTLY OPERATING PROPERLY the smell would be reduced significanly. At this point, I would not put any money on the Biodigester being operated properly.

If / When CH4 looks for another large farm I hope it's far, far away from anyone not benefiting financially from the investment, and down wind!

Zkraft cares for kraft, not the commuity, digester wold help enviroment, economy, and fuel bill across the board not to mention tax money, but no instead we give them electricity and fuel at a reduced rate. How about we all get that percentage off our bills? What makes a company that makes a few million better then the working class stiffs there and other places. I hope someone else runs with this idea andpimps gasnback into the system.

And your an oxygen deprived typical red neck with problem more than a front tooth. Probably make one trip to Lowville once a month to shower rather you need it or not. Your the one that smells.

You can decide to just say nothing and the problems will continue to be there. It is up to you.

It's time to start looking at another useless project. One that will cost the taxpayer money.

Oh it's already started. The new building.

The digester is alive and well. Read the Journal Page B-9.

Good, I visited one in ohio. You didn't even know it was there, there was no smell and for every 10 trucks that came in only 1 went out with a fertalizer on it. Glad to hear. FFA has discussed these in the past.
