Thanks to Camden Fire Chief Chris Farley

I live in the vicinity of Mechanic Street in Camden. I’ve taken my daily walks on that street and for the past month I have noticed a strong chemical smell near one of the houses. Two weeks ago, I went to the town office to report the toxic odor. Nothing was done so I went down to the town office. Evidently, they were out to lunch, but I did see Fire Chief Chris Farley and reported my concern to him, and he said he would investigate. Later in the day, I decided to walk my dog downtown and noticed one of the fire vehicles and a truck from the EPA. Evidently there was a leak in an oil tank that went into the sewer and spilled into the river.
I want to thank you Chris for being proactive. I appreciate him taking this matter seriously.
