Virginia: "Appeal Filed Against Sewage Sludge Regulations"

"Shenandoah Riverkeeper Jeff Kelble filed an appeal in Richmond Circuit Court on Wednesday to overturn Virginia's sewage sludge regulations."

"The regulations, formed by the Department of Environmental Quality and approved by the State Water Control Board, govern the application, staging and storage of sewage sludge.

These regulations don't meet the requirements of state law and can cause pollution in rivers, including the Shenandoah, asserts the appeal."
