VERY pertinent and timely 'State of things' on NPR this Wed, June 10 at noon.
You can actually attend it live at Fearrington Village in Hillsborough.
But if you can't make the event, you can certainly tune in on NPR.
The topic is Sludge, it's spraying on our fields, and it's run-off into our waterways.
This is currently happening adjacent to Jordan Lake. With agriculture being a primary pollutant of the Jordan Lake watershed, it would seem that we should not allow the use of sludge until we at least know what's in it!

For those of you who live in the Piedmont area:
*F**earrington Village will host North Carolina Public Radio's State of
Things on June 10*.
Come to the Barn at Fearrington Village to hear a panel of experts
discuss the health issues around water drought, shortages, and
protecting the safety of our water supply. Frank Stasio, host of WUNCs
The State of Things, will emcee this public forum.
As the population of North Carolina grows, water shortages are likely to
worsen, not just in extreme droughts but day in and day out. More and
more people now recognize that there is increasing pressure on our water
supply, but we have not yet gone beyond analysis to solve problems by
developing workable solutions. We invite the public to attend and to
join the conversation with Frank Stasio and a panel of experts.
This June 10th forum is a joint project of the UNC-CH Gillings School of
Public Health and WUNC and the forum is sponsored by BCBSNC Foundation.
Please reserve your spot by calling 1-800-962-9862 or email us
RSVP at WUNC.org <mailto:RSVP at WUNC.org?subject=SOT%20at%20Fearrington>
Please arrive before 11:45 in order to be seated before the show begins.
