WARNING! Sewage sludge is toxic. Food should not be grown in "biosolids." Join the Food Rights Network.

The Southern California Alliance of Publicly Owned Treatment Works (SCAP) is a non-profit corporation that lobbies on behalf of publicly owned treatment works (POTWs) and wastewater collections systems.[1] Among their causes, SCAP lobbies for the use of sewage sludge as fertilizer. SCAP members are POTWs from seven southern California counties that together collects and/or treats the wastewater for 16 million people.[2]

Involvement in San Francisco Sludge Controversy

In May 2010, SCAP sent a letter of support to the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission in favor of its sewage sludge compost giveaway program.[3] In its letter, SCAP refers to composting of sewage sludge as "a highly regulated practice, producing a valuable soil amendment."
