UPDATE: One year later, spray field agreement on track, attorney says

Published December 19, 2007
A year after the signing of a settlement agreement to a legal challenging involving Tallahassee's wastewater spray field and Wakulla Springs, an environmental group attorney said he still expects the agreement to be honored.

The agreement largely resolved a legal challenge filed by environmental groups and Wakulla County against a permit proposed by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. The challengers, along with then-Attorney General Charlie Crist, said the permit failed to protect the springs.

A year later, city officials say they’re awaiting a permit from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. A DEP spokeswoman said she expects a permit to be proposed soon, but she can't be more specific.
