Captiva Community Panel committee provides update on wastewater study

The agenda for the Captiva Island Wastewater Alternative Study is in the hands of Lee County officials, with a workshop with the Lee County Commission tentatively to be set up in the coming months.

At the Jan. 9 meeting of the Captiva Community Panel, the Wastewater Committee provided an update on its progress for reviewing and evaluating alternative long-term wastewater strategies for the island. Jay Brown, chair of the committee, reported that the agenda is on Assistant Lee County Manager Doug Meurer's desk. The committee is shooting for a March or April workshop with county commissioners.

The county has hired Fort Myers-based TKW Consulting Engineers to conduct the study.
