SLUDGE VICTIMS

May 2001 update - compiled by Helane Shields - prepared for WWW by ESRA

"It definitely sounds like from the circumstances that this is typical of what -we're seeing from sludge exposure," Lewis said.

Lewis speaks about the issue as a private scientist because EPA directors, who disagree with Lewis, have forbidden him from speaking about sludge as an agency employee.

Though he has given the Pennocks the answer they were looking for, they never can be satisfied.

'It's not going to change anything for us,' Russell Pennock said. 'If we can contribute to them stopping the use of sludge, that's all we're after. Just anything good that can come of this.'

He said he is especially angry that he never was told that some people believe sludge is a health hazard.

'I wasn't even aware that this was a possibility,' he said.

He swears that he wouldn't have bought his house in 1989 if warning signs about sludge had been posted across the street.

'I might have my son yet,' he said.
