Mayor Kriseman Unveils Wastewater Improvement Plan

The plan will increase the capacity of existing plants, line and seal targeted pipes and manholes, engineer enough redundancy in our system to sustain operations for two weeks should one of our three plants go offline or be otherwise rendered inoperable in a crisis situation, and operate totally within the rules and guidelines of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, even during a crisis. Additional capacity through the complete reopening of the Albert Whitted Wastewater facility or other facility expansions remains under consideration.

St. Pete Becomes 1st FL City and 20th U.S. City to Commit to 100% Clean, Renewable Energy

The St. Petersburg City Council formally approved the city’s commitment to transitioning to 100% clean, renewable energy on Monday, Nov. 21. St. Petersburg represents the first city in Florida and the 20th city in the country to make such a commitment.

In a unanimous vote, the City Council Committee of the Whole allocated $250K of BP Oil Spill settlement funds to an “Integrated Sustainability Action Plan” (ISAP), which will chart a roadmap to 100% clean, renewable energy in Saint Petersburg.  In addition, the plan also incorporates components of a climate action plan, a resiliency plan and strategies for Saint Petersburg to achieve a 5 STAR Community rating.  The 100% clean energy roadmap builds on Mayor Rick Kriseman’s Executive Order establishing a net-zero energy goal for the City earlier in 2016. 

Mayor Rick Kriseman will share more information on the Integrated Sustainability Action Plan at a press conference on December 9 at 2:30 PM on the steps of City Hall. The Chancellor of the University of South Florida St. Petersburg will also make an announcement about the University's recently-completed Climate Action Plan.
