PUBLIC RESISTANCE TO BIOSOLIDS PROGRAMS IN CENTRAL VIRGINIA
Abstract:Land use in the State of Virginia is dominated by agriculture and forestry, Most of the counties are rural in nature, although many counties surrounding the metropolitan centers are seeing a large influx of commuters or retirees from northern states. The use of biosolids has been controversial in certain counties of Virginia for many years. However, for the most part it has been an acceptable practice. Recently, however, biosolids recycling – particularly the use of Class B – has attracted a great deal of negative attention. As a result, 13 of Virginia's 99 counties have banned the practice.
