I'm researching a local story about a community
fighting a newly built cremation incinerator directly
upwind from them.  Do you know of community struggles
and/or court cases in the USA regarding this type of

What is the law regarding the incineration of human

locations zoned as industrial, but the particular
facility in this case is in a commercial zone and
right next to a residential area.  Any information
sources would be welcome.
