Wastewater injection well plans on hold

JACKSON COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - After a lot of opposition, Waste Management is looking at alternatives to a proposed wastewater injection well in Jackson County.

Residents, the county commission, State Senator George Gainer, and U.S. Senator Bill Nelson are among those who fought the well proposed for the Springhill Landfill in Campbellton.
Friday afternoon, Senator Gainer's office announced he's working with Waste Management, Jackson County officials, and other community leaders to find other ways to dispose of wastewater.

This means Waste Management will hold off on creating an exploratory well and Jackson County will delay pursuing legal action.
