LOS ANGELES, CA – My office has been alerted of the foul odor impacting residents in the Carson community and is working with LA County Public Works to address this issue. I have heard from constituents about their health being impacted due to the smell of the air and I take these reports seriously. Currently, Public Works is investigating this and I have requested Public Works coordinate with the appropriate county and state departments to provide additional air monitoring and for the findings of their report to be shared with my office. We will continue to keep the Carson community updated as we receive more information on this evolving issue. For additional questions or concerns, please contact the LA County Public Works 24/7 hotline at 800-675-HELP (4357).
