Also known as sludge. The biosolids company Fire Mountain “Farms” has filed an application with the Department of Ecology for a permit to create a dumping, spreading and spraying site they are calling their “Mid Mountain Unit” where they will be dumping (or spraying) human manure on more than 170 acres of a large property near Yelm!
Please contact the Department of Ecology to tell them you don’t want this stinky dangerous mess in our town. The Department of Ecology held only one public hearing in Yelm on January 24, 2019. They refused to allow a show of hands of those opposed, yet the room was full to overflowing. Send comments and concerns about this permit to the Department of Ecology.
The Deadline for Public Comment was February 13.
