Aloha neighbors and friends,
Today about 5:30 p.m. we started smelling Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) at my house in Kehena Beach. Unfortunately this coincides with an accident at the Geothermal Power Plant that happened at the same time. I’m writing to you to see if you smelled it. I’d like to get an idea of what areas the gas traveled to. We’re so far from the plant that officials probably don’t even think that our area is effected.
If you’re not familiar with the “scent” of Hydrogen Sulfide, it smells like sewer gas,a decaying smell. If you smelled it today you MUST call and get this documented.
Please call to file a report with PGV response line:
P.S. It probably would not hurt to contact other government agencies as well.
Please see PGV monitor report below that shows the spike in H2S
