Complaints about students with nosebleeds, dizziness, disorientation and nausea started appearing on the alliance’s blog in early October. Some residents reported smelling rotten eggs, a smell associated with sulfides, while others reported odors similar to gas, pesticides and fingernail polish remover.
The day of the school board meeting, the alliance posted a report titled “Substantial Endangerment,” which offered a detailed account of students’ recent health problems, including one who complained of unusual chest pains after running around the high school track.
