Biosolids on Va. farm fields stir questions
Question of the Day
SPOTSYLVANIA, Va. (AP) - A company’s plans to spread treated sewage on more than 6,000 acres in Spotsylvania County are prompting questions from residents.
Biosolids is the name for what’s left after the treatment of human wastes. Companies are paid by municipalities to dispose of the material, but it is often given free to farmers for their fields.
Synagro Central LLC is proposing the Spotsylvania County sewage spreading.
The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality heard from about 100 residents at an information session this week. The Free Lance-Star (http://bit.ly/1ikKPel ) said many want to know more about the company’s plans.
Concerns centered on health issues, as well as any odors associated with the spreading of biosolids.
A permit is required before biosolids can be spread on fields.
