Real People Are Sick And Dying Across This Country
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.
“Federal law provides use or disposal of sludge is a local determination”
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.
