NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. - A $300 million wastewater treatment plant for North Las Vegas and discharge into the Sloan Channel, despite Clark County objections, have created a lot of angry residents who say life has been nearly unbearable since last summer.
The North Las Vegas Utility Advisory Board received an earful Tuesday night from neighbors who live near the Sloan Channel.
"Now, we got bats and mayflies, and it's really irritating," concerned resident Mark Skougard said.
"The mayflies, when they get started, they're hard to fight, and they're hard to get rid of," added concerned resident William E. Simshauser.
"As for the stench, it smells like a wet Saint Bernard, and the bugs are terrible," said one concerned resident.
Flyers about Tuesday night's meeting have been going out to the neighborhoods. One reads, "Tired of the bugs and the smell coming from the Sloan Channel?"
