City agrees to improve wastewater treatment
Improving Tallahassee's wastewater is needed to protect Wakulla Springs, but it "doesn't come free," Mayor John Marks said Tuesday.

Marks and Gov.-elect Charlie Crist joined Wakulla County Commission Chairman Brian Langston and other legal challengers to the city's spray field in signing an agreement Tuesday to drop their legal challenges to the spray field in return for the city improving its wastewater treatment.

The city agreed to spend $160 million to upgrade its wastewater plants within six years to reduce nitrogen by 75 percent.
