Commissioners will get update on Deer Creek odor Monday

Mesa County staff will update the Board of County Commissioners Monday in Public Hearing on the situation at the Deer Creek wastewater disposal facility in Whitewater.

Residents have complained of a strong odor coming from the facility, at 5180 U.S. Hwy. 50, off and on since last fall. Recently, the complaints have increased.

Last Friday, Mesa County's Planning Division Director Linda Dannenberger sent a letter to Alanco Energy Services officials, urging them to remedy the smell. If necessary, the Commissioners could call a hearing to review the facility's Conditional Use Permit, which allows it to operate.

Today, Commissioner John Justman gave this update: "The issue of the odor at Deer Creek is continuing to be worked on. There was a treatment made to the water at the facility this morning. The county will continue to monitor the situation until the issues are resolved. We will be closely watching."

Monday's Administrative Hearing starts at 9 a.m. in the Public Hearing Room at the Old Courthouse, 544 Rood Ave. View the agenda here.
