East Texas residents just won an 11-year battle against noise and pollution from a natural gas compression station.

County residents win 11-year-old lawsuit
This took place in Lamar County where a jury has turned the page on an 11-year-old battle by 12 county residents who filed the case in 1998.
Noise and odor was a major problem for residents living near the compressor but they were given the typical response: We are in compliance so there is nothing you can do.
During the trial it was revealed that “state monitoring, which the company touted as its defense, was really a mere rubber stamp.”
This was another case of the state allowing the industry to regulate itself at citizens’s expense.
Okay, so all you people who have written to me about compressor noise, THIS IS YOUR TICKET!
