A public meeting regarding the landfill on Story Mill Road in Bozeman began Wednesday night.
"The other question is, what is happening to all of us who live in this subdivision Mr. Mayor what is happening to us."
The city gave a presentation updating the public on the status of the Story Mill Road land fill where volatile organic compounds, or VOC's, have been found in surrounding homes.
"We are doing our best to get information out to folks this is very complicated project, there is a lot of things going on and a lot of information," said director of Public Works, Craig Woolard.
Over the last year or so the city has been collecting data from the landfill to find out ways to fix the issue.
Woolard said, "Collect data and move towards designing and installing a remediation system to address the movement of any contaminants off the land fill."
Currently the city has a landfill gas extraction system in place mitigating the gases from the landfill. They are also studying the exposures at different locations to help come up with more efficient ways to mitigate.
"We will continue to do some additional work on gathering some data, some onsite testing trying to optimize our systems out there," Woolard said.
The next steps include more sampling, and selecting new remediation technology.
Decisions on a new remediation technology will be revealed at the next public meeting.
