Plans to dispose of Piney Point wastewater underground gain momentum

BRADENTON – Plans to build an injection well to dispose of wastewater at Piney Point continue to progress, and crews are ready to begin construction once the state issues a permit.

Florida Department of Environmental Protection and Manatee County officials discussed the proposal with residents at a public meeting Wednesday evening at the Manatee County Central Library. Although many residents cited objections to the plan, the meeting was one of the last steps before DEP can issue final approval.
