VEOLA is resourcing the world! This should make everyone in the world very scared.....VEOLA has as a major shareholder here in the US the same Wall Street Ivy League universities that give us all of the corporations that are destroying our natural resources. Johns Hopkins here in Baltimore is the face of VEOLA ENVIRONMENT and VEOLA TRANSPORTATION. I would like to spend time talking about how that is a killer for health in America.Controlling who water, energy, and waste recycled products are distributed courtesy of Wall Street means what is left of our natural resources----like fresh water and quality food, energy resources like oil, electricity, and natural gas -----will be in the hands of this global corporation that is run by the same corporations that kill with pollution. Who will get the remaining fresh water now that all of US aquifers in the US have been run dry and/or contaminated by fracking? VEOLA ENVIRONMENT. Don't worry----if all of the remaining fresh water goes to the rich, VEOLA is recycling waste water for you and me. The mid-west has already been forced to use waste water as drinking water even as global corporations are still taking water from our aquifers to sell. THIS WILL BE A HUMAN RIGHTS CATASTROPHE.I spoke of the artificial turf Johns Hopkins is installing all over Baltimore made with recycled tires and the health hazards already anticipated. VEOLA ENVIRONMENT collects used tires and no doubt they are the source of this new product idea as tires as turf. TIRES AS TURF-----AN INNOVATIVE RESOURCING OF DISCARDED WASTE.So, VEOLA will be the privatized public waste collection which will be paid to pick up our waste-----they will use SMART METERS to make sure you sort and send things right where they need to go or make sure you are not getting energy you cannot pay for as rates soar-----VEOLA will then use that waste as products----recycled waste water for drinking water or tires as athletic fields and make profits at every turn. Selling products with prices that are soaring-----paid for collecting waste to recycle to sell again----and creaming the top for the best of resources left to send to the most wealthy.
Below you see what fills Baltimore's playground this past decade----and it is all crumbling and needing to be taken out. This is a product VEOLA ENVIRONMENTAL thought up to profit from recycled waste.

Improving access to resources
In a world of growing needs and dwindling reserves, access to basic resources is becomingly increasingly complex and a source of tension. In response to these challenges, Veolia is developing durable solutions to supply the greatest possible number of people with the resources needed to ensure the wellbeing of communities, to make regions attractive and to underpin the performance of companies. These solutions include access to safe drinking water and energy services for cities and their inhabitants, services to industry to guarantee continuous supplies for production processes, and recovery systems for materials within a circular economy.
By reinventing its business activities, Veolia is making it possible to create new secondary resources that are gradually offsetting the growing scarcity of natural primary materials. Through innovation in recycling materials and recovering waste, Veolia is providing solutions that significantly extend the life span and usage value of extracted resources. To close the loop of the circular economy, Veolia is developing its eco-design expertise to support producers right from the initial steps in creating manufacturing processes through to the production of new materials from transformed waste.
We help improve access to water
By 2025, 63% of the world’s population will face water shortage. Veolia works daily to develop new ways of making this vital resource available when and where it is needed.
Below you see the INNOVATION of VEOLA ENVIRONMENT----now they can throw all of that pesky medical hazardous waste from Johns Hopkins into this Johns Hopkins' owned waste incinerator as a shareholder with VEOLA. This is what recycling waste looks like to a Wall Street VEOLA wanting to control all of our natural resources. This largest incinerator in the nation placed in Baltimore's Southside will emit fumes and leave behind the most toxic elements of waste----are real health hazard. What organizations did Johns Hopkins use to promote this incinerator as good for Maryland? Public schools and public museums which are supposedly going to get funds from this project.
THIS IS SO HORRIBLE THAT THE WORST OF DICTATORS IN HISTORY COULD NOT COME UP WITH THESE KINDS OF POLICIES.
Think as well how all of the air contaminants will not only harm the citizens and the land around this area----but these particulates will end up in the Bay very near this facility. Burning hazardous waste is the cheapest way for Johns Hopkins to get rid of its medical waste and that is what is important!
Hundreds protest construction of incinerator in Baltimore Nation's largest incinerator to be built in Curtis Bay area
UPDATED 10:41 AM EST Dec 19, 2013 Baltimore Sun
A trash-burning incinerator is planned less than a mile from several schools in the Brooklyn-Curtis Bay area.
After school on Wednesday, the group took to the streets to protest with signs and bullhorns, marching from Benjamin Franklin High School to the site of the proposed incinerator.
There are several reasons for concern, including the incinerator's potential to burn up to 4,000 tons of waste each day.
According to the United Workers organization, the south Baltimore neighborhoods surrounding where the incinerator will be built already register some of the nation's highest levels of toxic air pollution. The group said the area already has some of the city's highest mortality rates for heart disease, lung cancer and chronic lower respiratory disease.
"Curtis Bay is a community just like any other, and it isn't fair that we have to breathe toxic air every day that hurts our health," said Destiny Watford, an 18-year-old community resident who is currently studying at Towson University. "This is why we are coming together -- to stop the incinerator and put an end to the cycle of failed development."
In the past few months, the Fair Development Campaign has launched a website and online petition against the plan, calling on Gov. Martin O'Malley to stop the construction.
The march was also endorsed by the Chesapeake Climate Action Network, Environmental Integrity Project, the Maryland Environmental Health Network, Clean Water Action, Community Research and the Global Alliance for Incinerator Alternatives.

If you’re looking for an efficient way to destroy hazardous organic compounds and deal with a wide variety of waste materials, no other method matches the effectiveness of high-temperature incineration. Veolia Environmental Services provides the most environmentally compliant, safe and cost-effective incineration service in the industry. And, once incinerated, the resulting ash and other residue is stabilized and placed in permanent land disposal.
Safely Incinerate without Burning Through Your Budget Our incineration services provide benefits such as:
- Destruction of hazardous waste at a cost-effective price
- Access to our network of incineration facilities, strategically located across the U.S. and fully permitted to meet all applicable regulations and requirements
- The security of complete cradle-to-grave services, from collection and transportation of your hazardous waste materials, through the final disposal of any ash or other residue in a secure land disposal facility
- A full-range incineration system that includes both rotary kilns and fixed-hearth incineration technology for the ultimate in flexibility for handling your most difficult hazardous wastes
- The ability to handle bulk or drummed wastes, eliminating the expense of special containers or special packaging of your wastes
- In many areas, access to the efficiencies and cost savings of rail transportation
Who drained our aquifers dry and contaminated them with fracking and mining chemicals? The same people now telling us we have to drink recycled waste water----its the sustainable thing to do. Meanwhile, global private water corporations are draining fresh water aquifers dry and selling it to the highest bidder. Don't worry says VEOLA ENVIRONMENT----we will use those plastic bottles for something that no doubt harm your family's health!
Rationing water with SMART METERS as the water rates increase is what VEOLA thinks is smart resource management. Big AG and Big Frack may have sucked those aquifers dry but it will be you and I who have to beg, steal, and borrow water as it becomes scarce.
VEOLA IS THE GLOBAL CORPORATIONS AND IVY LEAGUE UNIVERSITIES BEHIND THE RAPING OF OUR EARTHS WEALTH AND RESOURCES====WE DO NOT WANT THEM CONTROLLING OUR PUBLIC SERVICES AND NATURAL RESOURCES.

Local government plays an important role in water management and the delivery of water services to local communities. We share an economic imperative to work together to find the most efficient and valuable solutions. In order to provide safe and secure water supply and sewerage services to the local community each step of the water cycle must be effectively managed - from extraction, treatment, storage and distribution of drinking water through to the collection, transportation, recycling and restitution of wastewater. Municipal water initiatives of this size are not without their own unique challenges including
- Rising productivity demands
- Tight capital budgets
- Stakeholder management, including odour, noise, transportation
- Improving service levels to customers
- Maximising network performance while minimising disruptive maintenance
- Ageing assets and infrastructure
So, if the supply is dwindling what choice do we have? We can send corporations to using only recycled water and stop allowing private water corporations take from our aquifers.
Recycled Wastewater Is Crucial

In the face of global water supply shortages, recycled water has the potential to help us be more climate-independent. And even though it seems novel, reused water is already cycled back into the supply. If you live in a community downstream of another one, chances are, you are reusing its water.
Americans have embraced “sustainability” in so many aspects of modern life, but not when it comes to water resources. Recycled or reclaimed water is water that is used more than one time before it passes back into the natural water cycle. Treated wastewater, including sewage and water used for industrial processing, can be cleanly recycled for agricultural and landscape irrigation, industrial processes, toilet flushing, replenishing a groundwater basin and even for drinking water.
Scientifically proven advances in water technology — including reverse osmosis, ultraviolet disinfection, and oxidation — allow communities to reuse water for many different purposes, treating the water differently depending on the intended use.
And the best part is: there is huge potential for growth in using recycled water. Thirty-two billion gallons of municipal wastewater are produced everyday in the United States but less than 10 percent of that is intentionally reused.
One key reason that water reuse is not a bigger part of the nation’s water supply is that it is still characterized as a waste product in most places. In a progressive move, California recently enacted legislation that reclassifies recycled water as a water resource. The state government also recently streamlined the permitting process for using recycled water for irrigation and allocated $200 million in grants to encourage related projects.
There are success stories in other parts of the country as well. Communities in dry west Texas have used state-of-the-art technology to augment their drinking water supply with reused water; the governor of Oklahoma just signed a law to encourage water reuse; and Florida’s most recent water reuse report indicated that 719 million gallons of water is beneficially reused each day in 2013 — the largest amount in the country.
But the amount of water intentionally reused in America is still quite low and it will stay that way as long as the public regards reuse as an emergency measure. Americans have embraced “sustainability” in so many aspects of modern life, but not when it comes to water resources.
Conservation cannot meet future water demands alone and other measures that create new sources of water, like desalination, are still more expensive. Water reuse is the easiest and most economical fix. It should be included in the water supply portfolio of every community.
California is leading the way with VEOLA ENVIRONMENT and INNOVATIVE ways to hand Wall Street more of the public's money while dismantling public health agencies that will notice the problems all this INNOVATION is creating. California is ground zero for Big AG draining their aquifers and Big Frack killing them further AND CALIFORNIA IS A RAGING NEO-LIBERAL STATE. None of these studies have shown this supposed new technology works as they move forward with installing it because global corporations are going to take what is left and sell it to the highest bidder!
Groundwater recharge: health and regulatory considerations
Groundwater recharge with recycled municipal wastewater: healthand regulatory considerations

The lack of specific criteria and guidelines governing the artificial recharge of groundwater withrecycled municipal wastewater is currently hampering the implementation of large-scalegroundwater recharge operations. Thus, policies and guidance for planning and implementing newgroundwater recharge projects are needed, and would serve as the basis on which future and currentgroundwater projects would be designed and evaluated.This chapter discusses some of the challenges for groundwater recharge. It presents three casehistories of wastewater recycling for nonpotable reuse, with less stringent water quality goals thanwould be required if potable reuse was being considered. It also discusses risk assessment fordrinking-water contaminants and presents the proposed State of California criteria for groundwaterrecharge as an illustration of a conservative approach to groundwater recharge.6.2 Challenges for groundwater rechargeGroundwater recharge with recycled wastewater presents a wide spectrum of technical and healthchallenges that must be carefully evaluated. Some basic questions that need to be addressed include(Asano and Wassermann, 1980; Roberts, 1980; NRC, 1994):What treatment processes are available for producing water suitable for groundwaterrecharge?How do these processes perform in practice at specific sites?How does water quality change during infiltration–percolation and in the groundwater zone?What do infiltration–percolation and groundwater passage contribute to the overall treatmentsystem performance and reliability?What are the important health issues to be resolved?How do these issues influence groundwater recharge regulations at the points of recharge andextraction?What benefits, problems and successes have been experienced in practice?Pretreatment requirements for groundwater recharge vary considerably depending upon thepurpose of groundwater recharge, sources of recycled wastewater, recharge methods and location.Although the surface spreading method of groundwater recharge is in itself an effective form ofwastewater treatment, a certain degree of pretreatment must be provided to municipal wastewaterbefore it can be used for groundwater recharge
