Public Input Sought On Northwest Injection Wells

ST. PETERSBURG, FL (January 24, 2017) - Citizens are invited to share ideas and suggestions regarding the future of the city's Northwest Water Reclamation facility (NWWRF), 7500 26th Ave. N., including the addition of two Underground Injection Control (UIC) wells during a public information session, Wednesday, February 22, at the Water Resources Complex, 1635 3rd Ave. N., at 4 p.m.

The city is seeking to increase its wet-weather capacity for disposing of reclaimed water during heavy rain events with additional underground injection wells. The new Northwest injection wells will be located either inside the existing facility footprint or on property immediately north, which is owned by St. Petersburg Parks and Recreation. The Northwest expansion project is similar to one in process at the Southwest Water Treatment facility.

Residents will have the opportunity to learn about current conditions at the facility, hear an overview of the proposed plans and offer suggestions to Public Works staffers as the city moves ahead with the project.

When: Tuesday, February 22, 2017 at 4 p.m.
Where: Water Resources Complex, 1635 3rd Avenue North
Who: Staff Updates and Public Comments
Why: To discuss UIC Wells expansion at the Northwest Water Reclamation Facility
