Spray field's problem: location

Published March 14, 2007 Tallahassee Democrat
What agencies in their right mind would permit Tallahassee to locate a spray field on the porous lime rock that feeds the headwaters of Wakulla Springs?

The spray field is not a new problem. It first surfaced when I was a Wakulla County commissioner from 1990 to 1994. Residents of the River Sink community in northern Wakulla County off Highway 319 complained bitterly that their drinking water was contaminated. All wells were tested by the Department of Environmental Protection and the health department; they were indeed polluted although officials hemmed and hawed about the source.
