Well today I sit down to relax and read the paper. WHAT, Bio-Sludge coming to my township. The article was pretty straight forward, it's ok to spread on land, it has no hazardous chemicals in it, it can't hurt the ground water and there isn't much anybody can do about it if the farmer wants it. Oh, and if you want to fight it go talk to the EPA. Aren't they the people that should be protecting us in the first place? Not to mention, where I live and the fields are it's a short runoff to the Delaware River and a Scenic Byway. We had this same thing back in the 70's and early 80's. The same farmer used sludge and most of the well in the area got coliform in them. I truly want to do something to fight back, but, I do need some direction. I hope I'm in the right place to gather info and be a force.

Regards, Swan1 in Pennsylvania

All of my personal contacts with PADEP are in the air monitoring section so you will need to go to a more indirect contact.

The more people who become involved the more attention will be paid to the concerns of those people. The more who join with you in asking questions the more responsive the answer.

Here is a list of general contacts as a start.

With that said, I seem to remember reading about some significant advances in biosludge handling/ If that were the case such information should be provided to those who have concerns.
