A Carbon County judge rules an East Penn Township farm cannot use treated biosolids on its fields pending a court hearing.

An emergency injunction requested by the township against Synagro and the owners of Never Done Farm has been granted.

The court order states Synagro is not allowed to conduct any waste operations on the farm "including but not limited to the storage and land-application of biosolids materials" pending further review and action by the court.

A court hearing on the matter is scheduled for May 11th.
