Ed Kenney’s recommendations:
“I would encourage anyone in Beth Doglio’s district to confirm that:
1) they are in her district
2) they need help in the House Environment and Energy committee pushing the biosolids bills from Darlane Schanfald (submitted as is) to a hearing.
“For those outside her district, we could say that the Thurston County Commissioners have just asked the Dept of Ecology to Withdraw the Determination of Non-significance from Lewis County’s Fire Mountain Farms’ application to spread and spray biosolids in Thurston County . . . so, could she push the biosolids bill(s) to a hearing to help keep our county free of other counties’ wastes.
“Other good points to make are that Fire Mountain Farms has a permit to spread wastes from four states in Thurston County even though it has been disciplined by the Pollution Control Board recently for mixing “dangerous waste” in its biosolid applications.”
