Posted on December 12, 2018 by Staff reports

Newly elected Santa Rosa County Commissioner Dave Piech and County Administrator Dan Schebler yesterday joined with leaders from Holley-Navarre Water System (HNWS) for a tour of water and wastewater treatment operations.

The tour was an effort to improve communication and outreach with HNWS members and county partners, according to organizers who say the tour was facilitated by leaders from several of the water system’s departments, including the President of Municipal Engineering Services Phil Phillips, Water Operations Manager Clinton Wells, outgoing General Manager Paul Gardner, Wastewater Treatment Plant Operations Manager Chris Legg and Board President Will Goulet.

The tour lasted two hours and included an overview of the HNWS franchise area followed by site visits to:  HNWS offices, Well #1, the recently completed Greskovich Rapid Infiltration Basin effluent disposal site and the Pepper Street Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant.

“With a shared wastewater treatment solution on the horizon, we hope today’s visit will help our county leaders gain a better understanding of the meaningful work our employees do every day and the importance of finalizing a shared reuse solution for the peninsula,” said HNWS CEO Rob Williamson.
