Deep well drilling at the Southern Regional Waste Water Treatment Plant (SRWWTP) may cause increased traffic, dust, and noise in adjacent areas as of January 2020.
The SRWWTP is located on Taft Street just east of 14th Avenue (behind the Eco Grande Golf Course). Traffic delays and other disruptions are possible during this project and primarily anticipated to be due to increased truck traffic on Taft Street east of US 1. This work is required under the waste water treatment plant’s DEP permit. Completion of this project will allow additional treated domestic waste water to be disposed of via deep injection well instead of through the ocean outfall. Although the work is being performed by a specialized contractor, utilities staff will ensure all possible measures are taken to minimize any disruptions.
