Abstract:

Proposed Action The SRCBOCC proposes to lease approximately 328 acres of Air Force property for the purpose of constructing and operating a reclaimed water RIB system. The proposed RIB system would receive and distribute highly treated, reclaimed wastewater from three wastewater utilities operating on the Fairpoint Peninsula and Santa Rosa Island, Florida. These utilities are the Navarre Beach Utilities NBU, the Holley Navarre Water System HNWS and the South Santa Rosa Utilities SSRU. The reclaimed wastewater would be pumped via pipeline from these three locations to the RIB System, where it would filter through the soil to recharge the surficial aquifer. A portion of this pipeline, known as the South Holley Segment, would transverse a section of Eglin AFB EA Section 1.0, page 1-1 and Figure 1-1 . By implementing the proposed action, SRCBOCC would address their current and future regional needs for disposing of reclaimed water generated within the southern region of Santa Rosa County.
