Water is Life: Waste Sludge Update with Barry Brock (SELC), Julie Lay (Alabama Waste Sludge Awareness) and Doris Cellarius (Sierra Club).

Waste in the form of sludge generated from industries like poultry processing plants and wastewater treatment plants is being sprayed on farm fields and property across Alabama and touted as beneficial use. This sludge is known to have pollutants and contaminants that can be harmful to human health, not to mention the impact to quality of life and property values from the putrid smell. Join us Tuesday as we provide an update from the Southern Environmental Law Center, Sierra Club, and an impacted community member about this issue and Alabama’s efforts to regulate this waste sludge.
