"The Sludge Battle Thickens"

"Farmers raising the cattle and horses -- and those applying to be designated official certified organic vegetable growers -- are organizing to oppose plans by the city of Seaside [OR] to spray biosolids on a local farmer's property. The biosolids -- another name for treated sewage or sludge coming from the city's wastewater treatment plant -- will be sprayed on 50 of the 107 acres leased by the city from property owner Scott Olson."
