CATAWBA, SC, Aug. 3, 2021 (Local News) -Some homeowners in South Carolina are considering selling their homes after asserting that New-Indy Containerboard's hydrogen sulfide emissions have gotten worse in the last two weeks.

The paper mill, partly owned by New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and located in Catawba, is under orders from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and South Carolina's Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) to reduce its hydrogen sulfide levels.

The regulators blame the chemical for causing a foul odor that's affected thousands of homeowners and caused some people to experience harmful health effects, including nose bleeds, difficulty breathing and throat irritation.
