Residents who live in the shadow of a northern Indiana soybean processor are appealing to the owner and local officials for changes to eliminate odors, incessant noise and dust residue from the plant, reports the Daily Herald.

Brian and Judy Spicher, who have children with special needs, said the residue settles on their property, including outdoor play equipment. They and a neighbor, Ashley Lent, said the previous feed mill owned by ADM/Supersweet did not create those problems.

A strategy to reduce noise and air pollution has been in place with the city since the company started operations, according to a Tri State statement. The plan includes enclosing the outside grain dryer, using a new ventilation system, employing a sound barrier and planting trees around the building.
