CARSON, Calif., March 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — carson-non-profit area Murdock Community and Care Services, Inc. is set to host a town hall public forum on March 12, 2022at 10:00 a.m. at Carson Christian Outreach (17705 Central Ave) to discuss the impact and next steps after the Dominguez Canal Crisis which happened in October 2021.

All residents are welcome.

At October 3, 2021, Carson, California, enveloped itself in a foul smell that permeated homes and workplaces throughout the city. The complaint alleges the stench emanated directly from the Dominguez Canal, which was later found to have been polluted by runoff from a fire at a warehouse housing various health and beauty products. The hydrogen sulfide gas responsible for the smell is said to have sickened thousands of carson residents and forced many to flee the city for hotels until the smell could be corrected. Help was slow in coming. It took county officials weeks to try to fix the problem and, after failing with ineffective treatments, weeks more before the smell was eradicated. At that time, citizens were suffering from failing health and businesses were experiencing a significant drop in revenue. carson resident Brandi Williams Murdock states: “While this is a public health crisis that has taken LA County weeks to resolve for carson and its people, in the past we have seen the county diligently address similar crises in other areas.” The lawsuit includes a claim against the county of Los Angeles for his role in this case.

Town Hall speakers will include the Director Brandi Williams Murdock discuss the overall lack of response to the Dominguez Canal crisis, the resulting community impact and the importance of community mobilization, Joseph L. Richardson, Esq.of McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP, speaking on the litigation process and legal options for affected residents, and Dr. Dora Barilla discussing the public health impacts of hydrogen sulfide exposure and recommendations for community members to protect their health and that of their families. An environmental health scientist will also outline the potential health effects of hydrogen sulfide and discuss an ongoing investigation documenting health symptoms related to the Dominguez Canal disaster. These speakers will be available to answer questions about the crisis directly from carson residents and help explain future options. carson residents who have questions about the Dominguez Canal crisis are invited to attend 10:00 a.m. to March 12, 2022at the Carson Christian Community Center.
