Science should tell us to reject sludge plant | Letter

I'm responding to recent letters by John Reinhart and Charles Cole concerning the proposed sewage waste drying facility in Plainfield Township.

I agree completely with Reinhart that the Slate Belt neither wants nor needs a sludge plant. The Slate Belt deserves better!

I also agree with Cole that we should use science and intelligence to decide whether to host such a facility. Science would quickly tell us a byproduct would result from drying sewage sludge. Synagro, the proposed owner, likes to call the resulting dried waste a fertilizer. It is not just a fertilizer, but the end result of whatever is flushed down a toilet and more. Since no intelligent person wants anything to do with the so- called fertilizer, it is often offered free to crop farmers.

If approved this plant would produce endless quantities of toxic fertilizer and undoubtedly will make its way onto local farmland. Since many rural residents have their own water wells this can be a serious concern. Since the local farmland is already contaminated with the spraying of herbicide genetically resistant corn and soybean crops, this would only add to an already vastly underestimated problem.

So when someone discusses a sludge plant, be aware every action has a reaction. Dried toxic waste will become the prime fertilizer used in the Slate Belt and beyond. Why would anyone want their food or any animal food grown by using the end product of a human waste sludge plant?
