The Deer Creek Evaporative Waste Facility, located at 5180 Hwy 50 Whitewater, began accepting "produced water" from oil and gas operations in Aug. 2012, despite objections from nearby residents. In Sept. 2013, residents living in the surrounding area began submitting complaints regarding offensive odors emanating from the facility. These "odors" described as "metallic" and "sickening" have forced residents to inhibit their outdoor activities and retreat indoors and close windows. Residents have experienced adverse health conditions such as headaches, dizziness, bloody noses and vomiting, which is believed to be associated with the "odors".
Repeated complaints over a 2 year period have resulted in short term solutions with continued promises of future remedies.
WE BELIEVE the Residents are not being heard.
