City to Enhance Wastewater Treatment Plans

News release from Aug 4th, 2006
The City of Tallahassee today announced its intention to seek a remand of the pending application for wastewater treatment and disposal back into the hands of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP)
The City has been seeking to renew its operating permit for the sprayfield, while at the same time conducting scientific research into how groundwater travels away from the sprayfield. This research is being conducted as part of a larger project to determine the causes of water quality concerns at Wakulla Springs State Park. Recent studies undertaken both prior to and during the course of permitting and the challenge to the permit have given City officials enough concern to warrant this new direction.
