Foul affair – Lead Stories – Jamaica Gleaner – Saturday | November 17, 2012: Three days after a mysterious substance polluted sections of the Corporate Area, the National Environment and Planning Agency (NEPA) says it still has not identified the chemical.

As a result, director of the legal and enforcement division at NEPA, Robert Collie, said the agency is unable to tell members of the public impacted by the fumes what kind of treatment they should seek.

Collie said the best option now is for Petrojam, the state-owned oil refinery cited as the source of the fumes, to reveal the name of the chemical.
