Hattiesburg Wastewater project to move forward while permit is reviewed

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The Hattiesburg Wastewater Project will move forward while its permit is under review.

The DEQ has set a hearing for July 15 to review evidence from critics, including Councilwoman Deborah Delgado.

Delgado questions the validity of the permit.

In the meantime, the project will proceed as allowed by state law, according to the company, Groundworx.

Delgado wants Groundworx to stop until there is a "appropriate permit" from the DEQ and the project has financing.
