The 1978-79 Sludge War
“Since many municipal sludges would meet any reasonable definition of a hazardous waste, I wrote a memo(3) warning
of the implications of including municipal sewage sludge in the definition of solid waste in any of the proposed bills that
were being discussed.” "if Congress gives EPA regulatory authority over hazardous wastes," said Sanjour, " Will we
have one policy for hazardous wastes which go through municipal treatment plants and a different policy if it goes
through and industrial treatment plant? if so, we will end up in court looking like fools."

Sludge Disposal: Sanitary Landfill-Open Dump-Superfund Site?
“The paper concludes that sludge can not be safely disposed of on farmland because: 1) only 28 out of 400 toxic
pollutants are proposed for regulation, 2) 15 out of 25 toxic inorganics on the superfund list are not included, 3) Thirty-
three pollutants considered hazardous for land disposal are not included.”
Journal of Proceedings of the New Mexico Conference On The Environment,
September 13-15, 1992. The Proceeding were published in February 1993

F. EDWIN HALLMAN, JR., attorney, Congressional
“Certain EPA officials obviously believe that they can make categorically untrue statements based on fraudulent
scientific data, and continue on with business as usual without any accountability to the EPA Administration, Congress,
and the public. March 12, 2004
http://www.loudounnats.org/pdf/Hallman_to_Subcommittee_rev.pdf

Attorney Hallman speaks of EPA and its partners and the law in Sludgewatch-1 Digest, vol 12, Issue 18: The end result
is that those who purvey the snake oil of biosolids, including those who make it and apply it, and definitely including the
government, will be no where to be found when more and more human, animal and environmental damages occur. The
only echo in the wind will be a very weak "Sorry." Therefore, Mr. Beecher and all those like him can continue to fool
themselves until the day of reckoning occurs, which will probably apply, unfortunately, to some future persons who had
nothing to with this atrocity. 10/23/2005

The Dirty Work of Promoting “Recycling” of America’s Sewage Sludge
“Since its inception, EPA has been promoting sludge use for farming. In the late 1970s, the first land application
regulations were formulated by managers and scientists in EPA’s Office of Water (OW): Henry Longest II, John Walker,
and Alan Hais.” “President Carter’s appointee to OW, Thomas Jorling, insisted that sludge not be regulated under
RCRA, and the Act was weakened.”

WHAT IS NECROTIZING FASCIITIS AND WHY IS IT ON A RAMPAGE THROUGH TUCSON
“Antibiotic resistant super disease organisms are creating epidemics worldwide.
The literature shows the disease organisms are being transformed in wastewater treatment plants. The literature also
shows the primary route of exposure is through sludge being spread as a fertilizer on lawns, crops, parks and school
grounds.”

Airborne aerosols: pathogens, Toxins, chemicals and metals (pollutants) in SLUDGE/BIOSOLIDS
“In this paper we are looking not just at bioaerosols, but all airborrne pollutants (e.g., disease causing agents, some
chemicals, some heavy metals, and dust) coming from land application and composting of sewage sludge/biosolids..”

Review of Organic chemicals in sewage sludges
“For 6 of the 15 classes of chemicals identified, there were no SSLs. For the 79 reported chemicals which had SSLs, the
maximum reported concentration of 86% exceeded at least one SSL. Eighty-three percent of the 516 chemicals were not
on the EPA established list of priority pollutants and 80 percent were not on the EPA’s list of target compounds.”

RECYCLING DEATH - DISEASE - CANCER
THROUGH POLLUTANTS IN SEWAGE SLUDGE/BIOSOLIDS
This paper is a brief overview of the sewage sludge/biosolids science which shows EPA has long been aware of the
deadly pollutants (infectious disease causing pathogenic microorganisms and chemicals) in sewage sludge/biosolids
which will not only destroy human health and the environment, but also affect our health through animals and plants.”
