It’s not too late for residents to share input about Milton wastewater disposal plans, a Florida Department of Environmental Protection spokesperson said last week.
The City of Milton has asked FDEP to allow the city to spray up to 1.256 million gallons of treated wastewater per day on rapid-infiltration basins and a spray field on a 100-acre property next to the proposed site of a new wastewater treatment plant.
FDEP issued a notice of the city’s permit application that was published on the city’s website beginning Oct. 2. While answering a resident’s question about how long the public could submit comments to the department, a 30-day time frame was mentioned, which would have ended Nov. 1.
Five years ago, Patrick Fitzgerald founded the local parading krewe known as the Emerald Coast Krewe of Airship Pirates, and on Saturday, Feb. 12, they, in partnership with the City of Milton, will host the 4th Mardi Gras parade in downtown Milton’s recent years.
