DEP permit aims to protect springs

Published December 21, 2007
The proposed permits and legal agreement require the city to reduce nitrogen in wastewater by 75 percent. The city also will study expanding the use of treated wastewater on landscaping and will improve the treatment of sewage sludge to make it available as a lawn fertilizer.

The public will have 21 days to file legal challenges once the permit notices are published in the newspaper.

City officials said they were anxious to receive the permits because delays could force them to halt planning for at least $160 million for the Lake Bradford Road and Thomas P. Smith wastewater plants.
