Farm could help offset untreated pollutants

-A A +A

A Trenton farm could help alleviate pollution that could potentially make its way into Fanning Springs due to a new wastewater treatment plant proposed for the Town of Fanning Springs, area officials and representatives said at a meeting last week.
Hugh Thomas, a spokesperson for the Suwannee River Partnership, told a group of about 40 concerned citizens and representatives from various agencies at a Fanning and Manatee Springs Working Group meeting that the owner of Simpson Farm, Douglas E. Simpson, was considering taking re-use water as an added measure to reduce nitrates not eliminated by the Town of Fanning Springs' proposed wastewater treatment plant.
Thomas said Simpson wasn't fully committed to the idea yet. "It's kind of in a holding pattern right now."
