  • Unfortunately, the overwhelming stench is more than an inconvenience — it is hazardous to the health of everyone within its reach.

    This alarming fact comes with a warning from the federal government: After a while, at even low concentrations — and certainly more quickly at higher emission rates — the odor dissipates, if only to your senses, so you can no longer smell it, which eliminates its purpose to warn you it is there.

    However, the danger remains and can quickly overwhelm unprepared residents leading to severe illnesses, injuries, and even death.

    Our York County New Indy Air Pollution Claim attorneys are joining forces with our communities to hold the New Indy Paper Mill liable for the damages they have caused our residents in Rock Hill, Lancaster, Van Wyck, Fort Mill, and surrounding areas, through a class action lawsuit, in an effort to end these hazardous conditions in our communities.

    Why Are Hydrogen Sulfide Emissions Dangerous?

    Hydrogen sulfide is the scientific name for the colorless gas emitted during certain manufacturing processes — including those at the Indy Container Board Mill plant — that produces a pungent rotten egg odor, even at low concentrations.

    It is extremely flammable and highly toxic, and its presence potentially makes the air quality extremely dangerous.

    The health effects range from mild headaches, eye irritation, and difficulty breathing to profoundly serious episodes of unconsciousness and death, especially in those with preexisting conditions. Further, the smell that is emitted can become a nuisance, which could potentially lower the property values for surrounding homes and land.

    If you are experiencing adverse health conditions caused by the Indy Container Board Mill plant hydrogen sulfide emissions, contact our experienced personal injury attorneys in Rock Hill today to learn more about your legal rights and options to hold the liable parties accountable for your full recovery.

    Who is Responsible for the Hydrogen Sulfide Emissions South Carolina Residents are Experiencing?

    Currently, our lawyers are investigating hydrogen sulfide emissions in South Carolina — including the New Indy Paper Mill parent companies The Kraft Group and Schwarz Partners LP — due to a change in the operating procedures and production processes that are placing corporate revenue over public safety.

    Based on our investigation, the byproducts from the New Indy Containerboard plant that were once properly disposed of before the change in the manufacturing process are now directed to outdoor waste receptacles that allow hydrogen sulfide to pollute the air, leaving more than a putrid odor, but hazardous air quality in its wake. Such investigation is ongoing.

    More than a Complaint, An EPA Investigation

    New Indy Air Pollution claims are currently being reviewed by both the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control and the Environmental Protection Agency, forcing the New Indy Paper Mill’s parent companies to perform air monitoring tests in our South Carolina communities to help preserve the well-being of the public from the risks of Hydrogen Sulfide emissions.

    If you or a loved one have suffered illness or injury from the New Indy Paper Mill air pollution, contact our local attorneys investigating hydrogen sulfide emissions in Rock Hill and Fort Mill today at the David W. Martin Law Group by calling (803) 958-9599 to join our class action lawsuit and hold the liable parties accountable for their negligence.
