Wastewater Treatment Systems Public Meeting
City Leaders Seek Feedback
Hattiesburg— The City of Hattiesburg invites citizens to attend a public meeting on proposed wastewater treatment systems at 6 p.m., on Thursday, May 2 at the Cultural Center, 723 Main Street.
The City’s current South Lagoon wastewater system was designed and built in the 1960s and has experienced problems meeting permit limits in recent years. For the last two years, the City has explored potential solutions with the specific goals of returning our facility to compliance with environmental requirements, meeting new nutrient permit limits, and reducing or eliminating odors.
One of the options under consideration is construction of a new, fully mechanical treatment facility that will replace the current South Lagoon. A mechanical treatment facility would treat the wastewater stream and replace the existing lagoon, while providing the capability for future upgrades to the system as needed. At this public meeting, citizens will hear a presentation on mechanical wastewater treatment systems and will have the opportunity to comment and ask questions from professionals in the field.
