DEP settles with Pasco County

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) reached an agreement with Pasco County to resolve continuous violations at 10 county owned wastewater treatment facilities. The legal order imposes close to $1.8 million in penalties and costs on Pasco County.

“Through this legal agreement, DEP is requiring the county to resolve its environmental violations in a timely manner,” said acting Southwest District Director Mike Farley.

As a part of the order, Pasco County must implement and complete capital improvements and modifications to facilities the Department deems essential to address sanitary sewer overflows and unauthorized discharges. This includes construction improvements and rehabilitation of the county’s collection systems and facilities.
