Neighbors say fight against BR treatment plant not over

BATON ROUGE - Families in a North Baton Rouge neighborhood say they're headed back to the drawing board when it comes to their fight against the sewage treatment plant in the area.

The University Place residents have been fighting the city-parish over the plant's smell and effects on their property for years.  The court battle ended Friday when the Louisiana Supreme Court refused to hear the case. 

While that may be the end of their legal efforts, the neighbors say they're hoping to sit back down with the city-parish to come up with a better resolution than the one-family, $20,000 award that came out of the case. 

They're also considering going back to court to get an injunction to shut the plant down.

Councilman Bones Addison says he's open to meeting with the community over the issue, but feels the city-parish has done its part to help all it can through the years.
