ENVIRONMENT AND PUBLIC WORKS (EPW)

On September 11, 2008, the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and
Public Works (EPW) will hold a hearing on the tragic consequences of
disposing of toxic sewage sludge on agricultural land, public land,
and as bagged "compost."

Sludge News at http://www.sludgenews.org is a dedicated website on the
hearing, including information about sewage sludge, how you can upload
your testimony, latest news, science, and how to take action.

The EPW hearing is a first step in a long overdue examination of the
policies that have led us to the appalling situation we are now in
with respect to contamination of our food supply and the degradation
of our health from the byproducts of wastewater treatment.

Thanks.
