CCP gets updates on wastewater, iguanas and more

The Captiva Community Panel was provided an update on the near-completion of the supplemental wastewater research project, plus received information about the island's iguana control service.

At the Oct. 8 meeting, Panel Member and Wastewater Committee Chair Jay Brown reported that consultant David Tomasko, of Environmental Science Associates, is expected to have his final report completed by Nov. 1 for review and presentation. He was hired to identify the benefits and risks of Captiva maintaining its septic reliance and practices versus some form of a central sewer system.

A preliminary draft of his findings was reviewed by the Wastewater Committee, members of the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation and Sanibel Natural Resource Director James Evans. The group in turn provided Tomasko with some comments to consider when drafting the final report.
