Grand Jury calls for ban on biosolids: Local officials support call to halt influx of sewage

By Doug Keeler, Midway Driller City Editor
The Kern County Grand Jury is recommending a ban on all biosolids being dumped in the
county until there is conclusive proof that the dumping on human sewage and industrial waste
poses no health threats to animals or humans or a threat to the area's underground water

"The slightest possibility of pollution of the county's groundwater and the water bank facility is
a chance the county cannot afford to take," the grand jury said in a report released Thursday.
"The grand jury recommends an outright ban on all biosolids."
