DID EPA INTEND TO SPREAD DEATH, DISEASE, CANCER ON THE LANDS OF THE UNITED STATES? Documents indicate this is a fact MORE
The EPA's PR strategy for sludge was first outlined in a 40-page report published in 1981 with a classic bureaucratic title: "Institutional Constraints and Public Acceptance Barriers to Utilization of Municipal Wastewater and Sludge for Land Reclamation and Biomass Production." It warns that sludge farming projects may be blocked by small local groups who "feel their interests threatened." Click here for MORE
The strategy was to disposed of the most toxic and hazardous sewage sludge on farmland, home lawns and gardens rather than in regulated landfills. The permit writers would be responsible for the deaths, disease, cancer and other health effects caused by sludge dumping. MORE
Under the Public Health Service of the Federal Security Agency and in the Federal Works Agency: (3) it is the national policy that the discharge of toxic pollutants in toxic amounts be prohibited; MORE
It doesn't take a lawyer to understand that EPA's part 503 sludge policy is a direct violation of the Federal law.
This had to be quite a shock for EPA soil scientists Walker & Rubin, who out lawyered the lawyers and put a muzzle on the public health service concerning the death and disease caused by toxic pollutants dumped on our rural and urban lands. They retired. But, this gives new life to the RCRA and CWA . Now the truth behind the 1978 -2005 sludge war will prevail. MORE
People who discover they have been exposed to the hazardous chemical and biological toxic pollutants in sewage sludge/biosolids dumped as a fertilizer generally end up dead, or dead broke. If the chemical and biological toxic pollutants in sludge/biosolids doesn't kill them, the legal cost of trying to recover health and environmental damages will leave them dead broke.
Victims of toxic pollutant contaminated sludge/biosolids exposure have found it virtually impossible to recover any damages from an industry supported by fraudulent EPA regulations, biased scientists, a biased legal system and a government funded public relations campaign to dispose of over 5 million tons of the pollutant (sludge) on rural and urban lands as a fertilizer.
This doesn't just affect victims exposed to sludge. As an example, a Director in one sludge industry company recently sold 98 million dollars of stock. While the Director, and the company, have probably followed all the rules as they know them, the stock will be devalued and effect the general economy when Kern County voters ban sludge before it destroys there quality of life and economy, .MORE

EPA Watch --- Hazardous Sewage Sludge Disposal as Fertilizer In 1993, under court order, EPA's Office of Water released a deadly sewage sludge disposal program it likes to refer to as a regulation. The main purpose of the program was to be able to issue removal credits to polluters for land application of ten toxic and very hazardous inorganic chemicals. EPA had no concern for what the military would call collateral damage of sludge disposal (i.e., death, disease, cancer). Congress and EPA says if your are exposed - you could die.MORE
Hazardous Sewage Sludge Science - Politics - Law
Deadly deceit is the only name that can be given to the EPA's 25 year old policy of promoting the disposal of hazardous sewage sludge as a fertilizer on farmland, home lawns and gardens, golf courses, parks, athletic fields, school grounds, and forest.

Studies show Class A sludge/biosolids may be the most dangerous long term threat to public health and the environment ever proposed as a method of sludge disposal.
