V3l9T3p3ZmU The story has been updated to clarify that this is not a ‘new’ substance but rather a new material.
The story also says it has been tested for chemicals, but it has not been shown to be harmful.
A spokesperson for the NSW Department of Environment and Heritage said they are currently testing the substance for safety, but that this will be completed before the end of the year.
“We are working to test this substance for its potential to harm people, so that we can make an informed decision,” they said.
‘It’s a huge leap’ In the meantime, residents have been sharing their experiences with the community, and others are sharing their own experiences.
One man told 7.30 the substance smelled like a “flesh-eating” insect.
“It’s been sitting in the soil for months and years, it’s a big, big, huge problem,” he said.
“You can smell it on the soil and the earth, it smells like a decomposing insect, it has a rotten smell to it, it tastes like a rotting insect.”
“I’m not going to say I’m not concerned about it because there’s no evidence that it’s dangerous,” he added.
“There’s been some people that have been very vocal, but we’re not worried.”
In another post, another resident described it as “a real stink”.
“You could see it in the air when it was raining and it would just hang around,” he wrote.
The soil is getting very polluted. “
My friend is concerned about the air quality in the area.
“And it’s been there for years. “
“If you get in the path of a rainstorm, it could cause a big problem.” “
A spokesman for the city’s Department of Health said the substance is known to cause problems for people with asthma and hay fever, but they did not comment on the possible health effects. “

A NSW Police spokesperson said that they were unable to comment on specific incidents.
“Police are investigating the circumstances of the incident and will make any necessary arrangements,” they told 7,500 ABC Melbourne listeners.
