Officials seek Way to remedy smelly ditch by Chauncey Ross Chauncey Indian Gazette. Net Black lick township officials said the expertise of state environmental officials May be necessary to remedy the pollution of a drainage ditch literally across Park drive from the township office. Neighbors Pauline Duncan and Ruth Ann and Wayne Stiles whose Homes stand about 100 Yards East of the township office told the Board of supervisors wednesday that the ditch has been fouled by household waste and apparent Petroleum products. The smell has been going into our houses for four or five months now Duncan told the supervisors. Somethings got to be done. Its like sludge. Its bad its Black and it stinks Ruth Stiles said. The neighbors said the smell gets worse after heavy rainfall and during hot weather. The ditch is intended to carry away Only Rainwater Runoff and although the neighbourhood is served by a sanitary sewage pipeline system the water in the ditch has the telltale Rainbow Sheen of an Oil Slick near their houses. Duncan said her grandchildren needed medical care for respiratory problems that developed after they were exposed to the smells. The exact source of the pollution a snot been determined. It has surfaced in the same area that was contaminated within the past few years by a leak of 250 Gallons of fuel Oil from a storage tank at a Mobile Home that has since been removed from the lot next to duncans Home. Supervisor chairman Larry Henry and supervisor Anthony Distefano said the department of environmental Protection cleaned up the earlier Oil spill and Distefano said the township would ask Dep to look at the new problem. Lets get the Dep Back in to look at it Distefano said. How do we clean up something like that if we touch it its going to make it worse. They May have some suggestions on How you do it what you do with it. Henry and Distefano considered the residents request and unanimously approved other township business. Supervisor John Shields was absent. In other business the supervisors agreed to advertise for bids for Road paving supplies for the summer project. Bids on More than 1,600 tons of various paving materials will be due in the township office by 3 p. July 6. Henry said the township plans to resurface Mcknight Road Hazel Street Ridgeview Avenue Sharps Hill Road Maple Avenue Extension and Susan drive As the budget allows. The township last month requested $ 141,748 of Rural Road paving funds being allocated by the Indiana county commissioners. The county was expected to respond to municipal requests today Henry said. Appointed Deborah Maudie of Lintner Road to a three year term on the Burrell township Library Board. Appointed Susie Furey to a three year term and Jeff Furey to a two year term on the Burrell township Parks Board.
