Stop the use of Biosolids in Jackson County, Al
This petition is to show the Jackson County, Alabama legislature delegation that there are enough county residents against the use of biosolids, to warrant a government address of the practice.
Please be a registered voter and resident in Jackson County, Al, and sign the petition in support of a ban on biosolids in our beautiful community. You may be contacted to verify your voter address, as it is a requirement of the probate office for petitions of this nature.
Biosolids is a term coined in the United States that is typically used to describe several forms of treated sewage sludge that is intended for agricultural use as a soil conditioner. Although sewage sludge has long been used in agriculture, concerns about offensive odors and disease risks from pathogens and toxic chemicals may reduce public acceptance of the practice.
Chances are, that if you have been in the Flatrock, Bryant, Stevenson, or Rosalie area of Jackson County, Al; you have smelled biosolids in use. This practice is not only a burden on the environment, but the entire community. People that have lived here for decades are now being confined to their homes for weeks or months at a time due to the unbearable smell and flys that ensue. Please join in on the advancement we are striving to make in securing the future of our environment.
