Real people are sick and dying across this Country from exposure to sewage sludge pollutants in biosolids.

Part 503.9(t) Pollutant is an organic substance, an inorganic substance, a combination of organic and
inorganic substances, or a pathogenic organism that,
after discharge and upon exposure, ingestion,
inhalation, or assimilation into an organism either directly from the environment or indirectly by ingestion
through the food chain
, could, on the basis of information available to the Administrator of EPA, cause
death, disease, behavioral abnormalities, cancer, genetic mutations, physiological malfunctions
(including malfunction in reproduction), or physical deformations in either organisms (humans) or
offspring (children) of the organisms.

EPA and the sewage industry have refused to investigate or release a list of the victims who have requested help under EPA's Charter
Biosolids is the public relations term for sewage sludge that is  contaminated with pollutants that EPA has admitted cause illness and deaths.

In 1995 Toxic Sludge is Good for You
exposed the EPA?WEF public relations
scam to put your health at risk.

USE OF RECLAIMED WATER &
SLUDGE ON FOOD CROPS
Based on the report, it is only a matter

“Recycling”
of America’s Sewage Sludge
"Federal law provides  use or disposal of sludge is a local determination"
LOCAL CONTROL

WHY are there so many sludge victims and sludge pollution of surface and groundwater?  
BECAUSE, around the country, the sludge bullies (U.S. EPA, waste industry and state "regulators")
are forcing toxic/pathogenic wastes from urban and industrial sources on unwilling rural
communities.

THE PROBLEM  the sludge bullies are ignoring is that federal law and the U. S. Congress always
intended that sludge use or disposal be a "local determination".

AND under the Supremacy Clause of the U. S. Constitution, federal law trumps state law.   The
states do not have the right to usurp, rescind, preempt or overrule the local control clearly and
specifically granted by the federal Clean Water Act and 40 CFR (Code of Federal Regulations)
Parts 501 and 503.   

The EPA has stated that the federal sludge rules (40 CFR Part 503) are MINIMUM standards.  
State or localities cannot adopt weaker regulations, but they CAN enact more stringent rules.

AP -- Sludge fertilizer program spurs
concerns -- Every day Larry Slattery
goes to work, the Environmental
Protection Agency asks him to do the
impossible.

AP -- Sludge Makeup Hard to
Know -- Scientists using federal
grants spread fertilizer made from
human and industrial wastes on yards
in poor, black neighborhoods to test
whether it might protect children from
lead poisoning in the soil. Families
were assured the sludge was safe
and were never told about any
harmful ingredients.
