If you own land in Campbell County it's important that you attend the Mar 16 Biosolids public hearing at Rustburg High School. Over 55,000 tons are proposed to be spread on over 3000 acres, much of it surrounding Rustburg and 1/2 mile from our schools. Come and make sure your land has not been inadvertently included in this permit. So far County citizens and employees have found 14 properties that were mistakenly included in this permit when the actual landowner had not given permission to have sludge applied to his property. DEQ has admitted that they do not verify the accuracy of information received in a permit application yet this is what is used to draft the permit.Please contact Lorraine Potter at 821-2949 if you have any questions. Also please visit their website at http://www.campbellcountysludge.org/ to learn more about Sewage Sludge.
The permit hearing will begin at 7 PM. If you wish to speak come and sign up. Written comments will be accepted by DEQ through March 31, 2010.From 6:15 - 6:45 materials will be available showing which properties are proposed for sludging.
