USA Denver Sewage Treatment Plant, Radioactive Sewage Sludge Problem - Japan Radioactive Sewage Sludge Contains Up To 24,000 Bq/Kg Cesium - Contaminated Sewage Sludge Being Sold As Compost, Added To Farm Soil - Incinerators Burn Sludge, Contaminating Everyone Downwind

What most people don't realize is that Fukushima was a global nuclear disaster. Radioactive fallout went around the world. Where does this radiation show up? Radioactive heavy metals go to the lowest place, which is in sewage treatment plants. 

If you want to know if your area is radiation fallout contaminated from your local upwind nuclear facility, go to your local sewage treatment plant, and test the dried sludge fresh out of the ponds or test the slag or powder that comes out of their incinerators with a sensitive pancake style radiation detector.

If there is a fallout or radioactive spill problem, it will show up in ALL of the sewage treatment plants that have been exposed to radioactive fallout. In Japan, most of the countries sewage treatment plants have been affected, as described by the following videos and radiation readings. The data and evidence is in, but most people won't believe it, because the 'official' deceptive pro nuclear story is locked in via the corporate controlled mass media, that Fukushima was only 10 percent of Chernobyl and it is all done and over with, basically a non event. 

What if the truth is exactly the opposite of this 'official' story? Would you believe evidence and data? Would you believe radiation detector readings?  

US TOXIC HEAVY METAL CONTAINING SEWAGE SLUDGE SOLD AS COMPOST FOR ORGANIC GARDENS, COMES STRAIGHT FROM LA SEWAGE FACILITY 


Kellogg Sewage Sludge "Compost" Scam
Video; https://youtu.be/RTG05oMG3EY

One problem is toxic heavy metals and chemicals in sludge, which then ends up in the 'compost' sold or given away by the local facility. Much of it is spread on local farms.

How much of this product is also radioactive?

Who is testing it for toxic heavy metals and radioactive heavy metal poisons?


RADIOACTIVE SEWAGE SLUDGE IN DENVER; IS THIS JUST A LOCAL PROBLEM, OR IS IT A NATIONAL ISSUE FOR EVERY CITY IN THE USA?


Where is the radioactive sludge in Denver coming from? Is this problem local, or is it a Fukushima evidence issue?

2016 - Denver Sewage Treatment Plant And Their Radioactive Sludge Problem
http://denver.cbslocal.com/2016/07/05/radioactive-sludge-removed-from-water-treatment-plant/

What are they hiding at these US sewage treatment plants? 

Is this a local issue, or is this something all US sewage treatment plants have a problem with?

What is in the sewage sludge that makes it radioactive? Is it radioactive plutonium, cesium or strontium?

ISCORS STUDY OF RADIOACTIVE HEAVY METAL POISON CONTAMINATION IN US SEWAGE SLUDGE AND RECOMMENDATIONS



Notice that this 'study' was done in 2004, before Fukushima happened, and many years after Chernobyl. Hmm, that is quite convenient, measuring the places where radiation would show up at the least likely time for it to show up there... Why not test right after Chernobyl happened, or right after TMI and downwind of it, or a month after Fukushima? They couldn't be doing that on purpose now, would they? 

Even testing at these least likely for radiation to show up times, radioactive heavy metal poisons did show up in sewage sludge across the US... 


ISCORS Assessment of Radioactivity in Sewage Sludge: Recommendations on Management of Radioactive Materials in Sewage Sludge and Ash at Publicly Owned Treatment Works
"The survey obtained sewage sludge and incinerator ash samples from 313 POTWs across the country. A total of 45 radionuclides were detected, with 8 radionuclides (Be-7, Bi-214, I-131, K-40, Pb-212, Pb-214, Ra-226, and Ra-228) reported in more than 200 samples. The highest concentrations were observed for I-131, Tl-201, and Sr-89 (all short half-lived medical isotopes). Many samples contained radium and uranium. The survey results represent a single sampling event at the 313 POTWs, and therefore, do not account for seasonal or episodic fluctuations in radionuclide levels. The POTWs participating in this survey were specifically selected for their potential for finding elevated levels of radioactive materials in their sewage sludge or ash. Consequently, the survey results should be considered conservative, and may not necessarily represent typical levels occurring in POTWs across the country. The dose modeling effort involving both worker and end use/disposal (including land application) exposure scenarios made it clear that while some scenarios and radionuclides give rise to very low doses, there are other radionuclide-scenario combinations that may be of concern.........

NRC and Agreement States have licensed about 22,000 facilities to use radioactive materials and about 9000 of these have the potential to release radioactivity to sewers. Licensees include utilities, nuclear fuel fabricators, universities, medical institutions, radioactive source manufacturers, and industrial users of radioactive materials. Laboratories and universities use man-made radioactive materials (e.g., carbon-14) in research, including in genetic research, the study of human and animal organ systems, and in the development of new drugs. 

Radioactive materials are also found in consumer products such as smoke detectors, luminous watches, and tobacco products (NCRP, 1987b). Radioactive materials are prescribed to medical patients for the diagnosis and treatment of illnesses (Murray and Ell, 1998 and the website of the Society of Nuclear Medicine at http://www.snm.org). 

Some fuel cycle facilities treat their wastewater onsite then discharge the treated effluent to the municipal sewer system according to a permit issued by the local POTW. In these cases, they may also have commitments in their licenses to sample the POTW sewage sludge for radionuclides. Any sewage sludge shipped offsite is monitored to ensure that only low levels of radioactive material are present. (See NRC Information Notice 88-22 – “Disposal of Sludge from Onsite Sewage Treatment Facilities of Nuclear Power Plants.”) 

Thus, potential quantities of radioactive materials released by nuclear power plants and fuel cycle facilities into sewage treatment systems are generally quite small compared to some other types of licensees. 

Contaminated clothing from these facilities is sometimes sent to a licensed nuclear laundry offsite that may discharge wastewater to a POTW. Other waste from the facilities containing radioactive materials is collected, treated, and packaged for disposal in licensed low-level radioactive waste disposal facilities.

Radioactive materials reach POTWs primarily via wastewater discharges. Chemicals and other materials (e.g., lime, fly ash, waste pickle liquor, or wood ash) used by the POTWs may also contain radioactive materials. In addition, infiltration and inflow into sanitary sewers may contain radioactive materials. Table 3.1 summarizes the sources and pathways by which radioactive materials may reach POTWs. 



In the late 1980s, it was discovered that, in addition, routine, licensed discharges of several different radionuclides (e.g., Co-60, Cs-137, and uranium) from multiple facilities resulted in reconcentration of radioactive materials in sewage sludges.

These routine discharges to the sewer led to the expenditure of considerable resources over the past ten years. The most significant concern related to radioactive material discharges faced by the Oak Ridge POTW managers was the possibility that radionuclides, even at low levels, may have inhibited their ability to continue land applying the sludge. The practice of land application of the Oak Ridge sludge was frequently called into question. In response, Oak Ridge developed a sitespecific, risk-based methodology for establishing radionuclide limits for its sewage sludge (see Appendix F).

The Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District (NEORSD) operates the Southerly plant. It is an activated sludge facility that produced 103,000 wet tons of filter cake and incinerated 97,000 tons of the filter cake in 1992. During an aerial survey conducted in April 1991 of licensees in the area, NRC inspectors noted elevated readings of radiation at the sewage treatment plant. Subsequent ground level measurements indicated radioactive cobalt-60 was present, primarily in areas where ash had accumulated in fill areas and storage lagoons

The following are known to have TENORM contamination potential: 

• Water treatment facilities (radium scale and sludge contamination in wastes and filters) 
• Paper and pulp facilities (radium scale and sludge contamination) 
• Ceramics manufacturing (zircon, uranium in wastes and molds) 
• Paint and pigment manufacturing (thorium, uranium, radium in wastes from titanium ores) 
• Metal foundry facilities (zircon contamination in molds for metal parts/machinery, thorium in welding rods) 
• Optical glass (thorium incorporated in glass) 
• Fertilizer plants (uranium, thorium, radium, radioactive potassium associated with fertilizer production, concentrations in wastes, filters, products, metal piping scales) 
• Aircraft manufacture (depleted uranium counterweights; in older facilities, radium dials, nickel-thorium alloys used in engine manufacture) 
• Munitions and armament manufacture (depleted uranium in ammunition and armor)
Scrap metal recycling (TENORM–contaminated piping and metal) 
• Zirconium manufacturing 
• Oil and gas production, refining and storage (TENORM (radium)-contaminated scale or sludge in piping, tanks, separators) 
• Electricity generation, cement and concrete product manufacture (coal ash containing uranium, thorium and radium particularly in fly ash component) 
• Geothermal energy production (TENORM (radium)-contaminated scale or sludge in piping, tanks, separators)

While the government of Japan reports Strontium found in 10 Japanese prefectures, they are quick to note that it is not a problem. While this conflicts with an independent report which found 230,000 Bq per square meter in a sewage sludge plant in Tokyo release in early June.Video;https://youtu.be/9NVWtJ5GHD0?t=2m55s

CONCENTRATIONS OF RADIOACTIVE HEAVY METAL POISONS IN SEWAGE SLUDGE AND ASH


Reconcentration can also occur during sludge treatment (Ainsworth et al., 1994). It can potentially result from the physical, chemical, and biological removal of radionuclides from the sewage and sewage sludge produced during wastewater treatment. Physical processes that increase the solids content of the sludge without loss of radioactive materials may lead to reconcentration. Sludge handling techniques that may contribute to reconcentration include digestion, dewatering, and incineration. Incineration may be the most significant process, because the total mass of the sludge is greatly reduced by water removal and combustion of organic material.

SUMMARY


In Japan, their sewage treatment plants have been storing their sewage sludge in specially built buildings because it was and still is too radioactive to use as fertilizer on farms or to give away to consumers for adding to gardens. Are all of them keeping this radioactive waste out of farms, gardens and infrastructure, or is some of it finding it's way into farms, gardens and homes?

https://www.epa.gov/sites/production/files/2015-05/documents/832-r-03-002b.pdf 

Basically, Japanese sewage treatment plant waste products are toxic waste as many of them contain radioactive toxic waste, and must be stored on site, at HUGE expense. How long can they continue to do this? Are US sewage treatment plants hiding this same issue, and covering it up?

WHERE SHOULD ALL NUCLEAR WASTE BE DUMPED AND STORED? 




The nuclear industry and politicians promoting them say that all nuclear waste created by nuclear facilities globally will all fit under a desk. They also claim that it is safe to be around, plus it will cause no harm.

Well, if that is true, why not put the nuclear waste under THEIR DESKS, so they can receive the hormesis health benefits from it?

Congressmen, how about living up to your words and taking responsibility for them? And if these sold out representatives won't take the waste, how about putting it all under the desks of the nuclear industry promoters, bankers and investors? They believe this hormesis stuff so much, why not let them prove it? Put the nuclear waste under their desks and beds. Let them get the hormesis health benefits.
