There used to be a fertilizer plant on Talleyrand (Wilson-Toomer) that was pungent too.

No wonder we can still smell the godawful smells near the city center today, RULE 5 WAS REPEALED!

https://www.coj.net/departments/neighborhoods/environmental-quality/environmental-protection-board-(1)/epb-rules


It was repealed after a petition from Rennesenz (Now owned by Symrise, who operates the facility at 601 Crestwood St)

As you can see, the petition was successful, as the rule was repealed

5 years old news, but still worth noting. No wonder the EPB keeps getting complaints from residents in the area but doesn't follow up on them, because they have no teeth with which to do so.

Jacksonville's stink is still here, but has nothing to do with the long-gone pulp industry.
