New water plans will be delayed

Published Dec. 17, 2007
Plans to slow the flood of pollutants into Marion County's groundwater and springs won't be ready for commissioners to consider by January as hoped.

Last month, after rejecting stiff rules meant to stem the tide of increasing nitrogen seeping from septic tanks into groundwater, county commissioners directed staff to come back with a revised plan two months later.

County Growth Management Bureau Chief Michael May said last week that after his first proposal failed, he would approach the board more carefully the next time, with more information and more community involvement in the plan.
