CCP to host public meeting on wastewater research
The Captiva Community Panel will host a public workshop on the island’s wastewater findings and alternatives on Jan. 28 at 7 p.m. at the Captiva Civic Center, at 11550 Chapin Lane, Captiva.
David Tomasko, of Environmental Science Associates, will provide a review of his recent study regarding potential health and environmental risks associated with septic systems, addressing potential pollution concerns and how island septic systems will function in the face of rising sea levels and groundwater levels.
In addition, CCP Wastewater Committee Chair Jay Brown will discuss Captiva’s wastewater alternatives and the extensive research on the current status and options he and the committee have conducted over the past two years.
Public questions and comment will be encouraged to provide feedback to the panel.
The CCP will consider the public input in its development of a long-term wastewater strategy recommendation and to help guide continuing research efforts.
