Abstract

"City" piece on a plan to spray hundreds of tons of Portland's sewage sludge into a forest in Parsonsfield, a small York County town on the New Hampshire border. Wheelabrator Water Technologies, the company the Portland Water District contracts with to dispose of sewage sludge and industrial effluent, intends to start stockpiling up to 2,000 tons of sludge at the 55-acre site in Parsonsfield in mid-June. The material will be spread over the land by the end of September. Friends of Parsonsfield, a group of local residents concerned about the environmental impact of the sludge, is trying to stop the process, claiming concern about toxicity of the sludge and the suitability of the site. A public information meeting was scheduled for June 8 at the Parsonsfield town office.
