Comprehensive Wastewater Treatment Facilities Plan

At the June 13, 2017 Blueprint Intergovernmental Agency (IA) meeting, the IA approved the allocation of $500,000 for the Comprehensive Wastewater Treatment Facilities Plan (CWTFP).  The CWTFP evaluates wastewater management alternatives to traditional septic systems, also known as onsite sewage treatment and disposal systems (OSTDS) in order to reduce nitrogen entering the groundwater.  The alternatives to receive the greatest consideration are advanced treatment OSTDS, cluster systems providing advanced treatment levels, and central sanitary sewer connection.

Leon County Government will implement the study due to the focus on the unincorporated area.  Public input will be encouraged during evaluation of the alternatives and the consideration of where the technologies will be recommended.  The end product is to provide direction on which wastewater technology will be recommended for future development and to retrofit areas to improve water quality throughout the unincorporated area.
