HANSVILLE — A proposal for a hay field in Hansville has riled neighbors. It's the fertilizer, not the crop, that has nearby homeowners worried. West Sound Utility District, which handles wastewater treatment for Port Orchard, applied with the state last month for a permit that would allow it to disperse wastewater sludge to a field in the Hood Canal Drive area.
