(Natural News) It’s easy to look at all the “biosludge” being shipped from cities and dumped into America’s farm fields and assume that this is mostly a rural problem, and nothing that the average person has to worry about, at least directly. But as revealed in an exclusive behind-the-scenes “bonus” interview for the new documentary film Biosludged, biosludge is now affecting suburban-dwellers as well.
Watch below as Texas resident Craig Monk tells about the horrors of biosludge making its way to his and his neighbors’ residences, some of which are very high-end. We’re talking all sorts of human waste piling up on land abutting these people’s homes, creating an enormous stink that Monk at first thought was due to improperly installed septic systems.
“There was an odor that came on us once a year, and the first time it came on us I thought they had put my septic tanks in wrong,” Monk explains about his initial discovery of biosludge not long after building a new home just south of the city limits in Midlothian, a town to the south of the Dallas – Fort Worth metroplex.
“Every year for about 13 years, here comes this odor. And the only way I can describe it is it smelled like something died and was putrefying, and it was just indescribable, and it would just stick in your nose, and it kept us in the house,” he adds. “This was about a half-a-million dollar house. We were in a subdivision in about a dozen of those.”

Local residents living closest to biosludge dumping grounds develop serious illnesses, says Monk
What Monk would later come to find out is that biosludge was being dumped all around his home and subdivision, as well as in other nearby neighborhoods containing as many as 175 suburban homes occupied by families. Some of these homes were closer to the biosludge dumping grounds than others, which would explain why some people like Monk and his family only dealt with horrific smells, while others experienced physical effects.
“We had 2,200 acres of land-applied sewage sludge … due south of us, within 200 yards,” Monk says.
“Mine was mainly odor,” he adds about the worst of what he personally faced, “but some of the [homes] that were closer were having all sorts of health problems like sinus problems, some of them were throwing up, and, in fact, they found used feminine hygiene products in bales of hay produced by some of these guys. And they found used prophylactics out in the field, and toilet paper.”…
