Laurence Downes, a businessman from Volusia County is seeking a special use permit and DEP approval to bring Human Sewage/Waste/Sludge (Class B Biosolids) from Volusia County and dump it on property with sensitive wetlands, located less than 2 miles from Crescent Lake and Silver Lake in South Putnam County. 

If you have ever been anywhere near a biosolids facility, the horrendous smell needs no explanation! This toxic sewage is considered a pollutant and can have serious effects on the environment and people living nearby.

Class B Biosolids sewage/sludge may contain dangerous heavy metals, carcinogens, radioactive waste, neurotoxins, disease causing bacteria and antibiotic resistant pathogens. It is basically made up of any waste that gets poured down your drain and septic, which can include medical waste, industrial waste and more. This is a highly controversial issue that has landed itself in our backyards. Townships all over the country are desperately trying to stop the spread of this hazardous, concentrated human waste.

Putnam County Residents, we desperately need your support !!!!

Please show your support by filling out the form below, then clicking on the Sign and Send button. Your protest and opinion regarding dumping biosolids (toxic human sewage) from Volusia county on Putnam county wetlands is invaluable. Without your help, toxic waste could flow into our waters and pollute our water source. This pollution could result in massive fish kills, water that is unsafe to drink or swim in and create an environment that no one would want to be around. Additional studies have shown the negative impact on the value of nearby properties.

PETITION TEXT

Dear Official,

I am extremely concerned that an application has been made to apply human sewage/sludge in the form of Class B Biosolids on a property with wetlands in Putnam County, Florida. Class B Biosolids sewage/sludge may contain dangerous heavy metals, carcinogens, radioactive waste, neurotoxins, disease causing bacteria and antibiotic resistant pathogens. It is basically made up of any waste that gets poured down your drain and septic, which includes medical waste, industrial waste and more. This is a highly controversial issue that has landed itself in our backyards. Townships all over the country are desperately trying to stop the spread of this hazardous, concentrated human waste.

Please do not allow this to happen in Putnam County, where this toxic waste could flow into our waters and pollute our water source. This pollution could result in massive fish kills, water that is unsafe to drink or swim in and create an environment that no one would want to be around. Additional studies have shown the negative impact on the value of nearby properties.

Please protect Putnam county residents and the environment from pollutants caused by intensive agricultural practices by rejecting each of the following:

● The special use application of sewage sludge/biosolids at 373, 405, 425 Old Highway 17, Crescent City, FL or any Putnam County property owned by Jennigirl, LLC, or American Bioclean, Inc.

● Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) Permit Application Number FLAB07018003
