FOX 2 News reported:

Residents in southwestern Illinois are raising questions about the use of treated human waste as a fertilizer.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports that rural Mascoutah residents want stricter regulations on so-called “sewage sludge” after a farmer fertilized his fields with it last year. Neighbors say the odor is stronger than manure and could be smelled up to four miles away.

An Illinois Environmental Protection Agency spokeswoman says officials investigated the case and concluded that rules were followed. Using treated human waste as a fertilizer has been legal in Illinois since 1983.
