Thank you for the invitation. Unfortunately, I will be unable to attend, so I am submitting my input here. As you may know, where I live is not far from the Evergreen Plant. I have submitted comments in the past. The ERA Representative told me that I must notify her and Evergreen when I notice the gas-like odor in the air. I did that a couple of times and once, the ERA was unable to respond because the incident happened at a time when the representative was not at work (it was a Sunday). In the last several weeks I have noticed a gas-like odor that is outside and it fills my garage. It happens early in the morning and on weekends when the EPA Representative is off-duty, so the EPA Representative is unable to confirm the occurrences I currently experience. I may be imaging this, but this seems like a strategic move to me. In the past, the Evergreen Representative responded quickly to my report and he claimed, in a kind, cordial, and authoritative manner, that Evergreen was not responsible for the gas-like odor, however, I do not believe the Evergreen Representative. It is his job to protect the company for which he works. I wish I were available to meet with you and to report to you in person. As I have said, I cannot. I hope my comment will suffice.

We just moved into the area and noticed the same odor! Perhaps the EPA representative has a weekend call center?
