Wakulla to drop its spray-field challenge

December 19, 2006, Tallahassee Democrat
Wakulla County agreed Monday to drop its legal challenge to Tallahassee's wastewater spray field in exchange for the city agreeing to upgrade its two wastewater-treatment plants.

The city sprays up to 20 million gallons of treated wastewater daily on crops at its Southeast Farm on Tram Road. Scientists say the wastewater is a likely source of nitrogen in groundwater that's causing Wakulla Springs to become choked with weeds and algae.
