Were complaints only from Orchard hills or also Northwood and Eastwood?

Irvine investigating factory for potentially toxic fumes after pressure from residents and UCI advisors.

OH, some Eastwood, and a few Northwood ppl chimed in on Nextdoor.  I think there was a thread on here and some TI members said they couldn't smell a thing in OH, so its YMMV for the various neighborhoods.

I smell nothing in the Groves side of OH. Which makes sense considering how much farther west it is. I think most of it is concentrated along the Jeffrey corridor. On Nextdoor there were complaints from Stonegate as well.

It must be the guard gate. Guaranteed to keep criminals and toxic fumes out of your community.  :)

It has nothing to do with the gate, just geography. I'm pretty sure Reserves which is even more hoity toity with its guard gate, vaunted IUSD and higher elevations  is not immune to the fumes due to location, closer to Jeffrey and the plant.  Waiting for residents of the Reserves to jump down my throat now...

There were people protesting the American Asphalt on the corner of Culver/Portola mid day today, a small group on every corner of the intersection.

This is what happens when you don't read the Terms of Service disclosures (so to speak). How is this a surprise to owners in the area? Didn't the builders tell everyone about nearby hazards?

My guess is that they are more at risk from the soil beneath them - given all of the fertilizer, oil smoke residue (during the time the orange groves were there) and all of the Native American bones buried nearby - than from any airborne particles.

Actually, the builders didn't disclose about All American Asphalt until 2018 or later for those in the Reserve. For those of us who bought in Eastwood before that, there was no disclosure. The public report I have listed hazards from the electrical substations, wireless facilities to the Bowerman Landfill, but not All American Asphalt.

Interesting. Nothing from either HOA either? Seems odd in this day and age not to have this listed. Could it be a distance issue? Example - OH would not have required disclosures about the 5 freeway and it's noise or pollution because of distance. Same with the landfill given how far away it is. Perhaps a disclosure about the 261 is in there, but zip a dee doo dah about American Asphalt seems out of the ordinary.

Thanks for the perspective.

Sometimes I blame this on the city for allowing to build  on the edges of the city. The plant was possibly build years ago at a distance from homes.
OH4 will likely be closest. The plant is right behind the Orchard.

looks to be an attempt to reduce demand for new builds in North Irvineā€¦I guess some FCBs are being priced out.
