My View: City raises bar on water treatment

Published May 26, 2009 - Tallahassee Democrat(Opinion)
Each day, day in and day out, 365 days a year, the citizens of Tallahassee flush, drain or otherwise discard more than 18 million gallons of "used" water into our sewer system

Last Wednesday, the city broke ground on one of the most advanced forms of wastewater treatment available, a process known as "Advanced Wastewater Treatment" (AWT).

Nitrogen fuels the growth of invasive plants such as algae and hydrilla that clog and denigrate our natural water bodies like Wakulla Springs. Moving to Advanced Wastewater Treatment will be bringing our community to what is widely regarded as the Gold Standard for wastewater treatment
