Change is in the air in the town of Mecca, where noxious odors have sickened many residents.

Wednesday, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) signed a deal with Western Environmental Incorporated, a waste-recycling facility in the area.

Foul odors have been traced to the plant.

As part of the deal, plant operators must implement a long list of measures, including installing an odor-control misting system and updating handling procedures for odor-causing substances.
