1. I remember as a very young kid going with my dad to pick up sludge for our vegetable garden.

That would have been around 1962. We moved from that house just a couple years after that, but it sounds like that stuff was loaded with PFAs (this was Cleveland) and they are probably still there where our 60 year old garden was. It was very common back then.

In Maine today, one thing that no one seems to be proposing is to ban the industrial discharge of these chemicals into the sewage system in the first place. I canít pour motor oil down my drains, so why can these businesses contaminate sewage sludge with toxic, forever chemicals? I donít get it.
