California Sen. Barbara Boxer will be making a personal visit Thursday to a Mecca school where offensive fumes have repeatedly sickened students and staff.

Boxer, who chairs the Senate Environment & Public Works Committee, called on federal regulators earlier this month to take whatever steps necessary to identify and prevent noxious fumes from polluting the air around Saul Martinez Elementary School.

An investigation by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the South Coast Air Quality Management District isolated the stench to a waste processing facility run by Western Environmental Inc.

The company has declined to comment.

During her visit, Boxer will be holding a closed-door “listening session” with representatives from the EPA, AQMD, school administrators, teachers and parents. Activist Erin Brockovich will be there, too.

Last fall, more than a dozen peope from Saul Martinez Elementary were so nauseated by a rotten odor they were taken to a hospital for treatment.
