Reporting on San Francisco's Toxic Sewage Sludge

Anna Werner's March 3, 2010, report on the SFPUC giving away toxic sewage sludge as "organic Biosolids compost", appearing the evening before a major protest of the program at City Hall, forced the city to put the program on temporary suspension. [2]

The Food Rights Network released a major investigative report on July 9, 2010 titled: Chez Sludge: How the Sewage Sludge Industry Bedded Alice Waters. [3] It examines collusion between the Chez Panisse Foundation and the SFPUC based on an extensive open records investigation of the SFPUC internal files.
