Septic to Sewer Conversion Overview

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

In July of 2016, the Governor signed into law the Florida Springs and Aquifer Protection Act to protect 33 Florida springs threatened by excessive nitrate pollution. As a result, Hernando County has been tasked to find ways to comply with the requirements associated with the 2016 legislation.

The state mandated Onsite Sewage Treatment & Disposal System Remediation Plan requirement for Weeki Wachee Springs is the driving force for the Septic to Sewer Conversion plan.

Hernando County conducted a Septic to Sewer Conversion Study in 2016 to determine which septic systems impact Weeki Wachee Springs. The study also prioritized the areas based on level of impact. The first focus area (District A) chosen is immediately adjacent to the spring and has the most immediate impact on it.

Focus Area District A

The general boundary area of Septic to Sewer Project is:  North Border:  Hwy 50 (west of the Sandhill Scout Reservation) South Border: Elgin Blvd. (west of Nardello Ave) Rd. East Border:   Nardello Ave, India Dr. Hazelwood Rd (to Brentlawn St/Hwy 50)
