The west wind coming from the spray field in Zellwood created such a strong odor I couldn’t finish mowing my lawn this week. That odor has to be not only unhealthy for our citizens, but our property values as well.center_img You have entered an incorrect email address!

Below are key facts associated with the status of this matter.· From the beginning, the City has worked in good faith to preserve Anuvia as an ongoing customer of the wastewater system. The City has been forthcoming with Anuvia as well as the public about this issue and its impacts.· In spite of differing opinions, the City and Anuvia have worked together to find solutions to ensure they continue to have the ability to operate their business with minimal impact on the City’s wastewater system.· The City and Anuvia have reached agreement for moving forward properly and effectively. The City and Anuvia have agreed on terms to conduct a closely monitored test of a pre-treatment protocol and a pre-treatment system installed at the Anuvia facility. The City and Anuvia have been working in recent weeks to implement a number of steps and safeguards that had to be into place by both sides before the test could begin. That work is continuing to take place even today. Assuming all measures are in place, the City and Anuvia hope to begin the test on Monday, May 1.· This test will be closely monitored and closely tracked. Based on the protocol developed, the expectation of both sides is that Anuvia should be able to resume its operations and discharge to the City’s treatment system. At the same time, the City’s wastewater facility should be able to continue operating normally, producing clean and safe water for our reclaimed water customers.· If, for some reason, the test does not work – and the wastewater facility falls back into an “upset condition” as a result of Anuvia’s outflow – the City is prepared to again order Anuvia to cease discharging into our wastewater collection system. Again, we want to stress that this would not be anyone’s preferred outcome. At the same time, it is important to remember that the City’s wastewater facility must operate for the benefit of ALL Apopka residents and customers. One customer cannot knock offline a facility that must serve everyone.· Finally, please be assured that the staff and leadership at the City of Apopka work hard every day with a commitment to ensure that services provided to this community are done so properly and correctly. While challenges occur, our focus and priority are to find solutions and minimize the fiscal impact on the City.” TAGSAnuvia Plant NutrientsCity of ApopkaWastewater Treatment Facililty Previous articleEuthanasia drug found in recalled dog foodNext articleA night of music under the Apopka stars coming in May Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR The Anatomy of Fear 1 COMMENT Max Horton Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.last_img read more
