Panama City Moving Forward with $1.4 Million Environmental Lab Project

News

A critical facility responsible for drinking water testing in Panama City is getting a much-needed upgrade. 

The city of Panama City is moving forward with a project to upgrade the St. Andrews wastewater treatment plant’s environmental lab. Over the past two years, the city has been upgrading and expanding the entire facility using budgeted funds. The need for upgrades only increased after the existing environmental lab was damaged in the hurricane. Residents should notice no change to their water while work is being done. The facility needs to comply with all Florida Department of Environmental Protection regulations.

“We have to provide testing for our affluent and so this lab is vital to be able to do that,” said Panama City Mayor Greg Brudnicki. 

Marshall Brothers Construction will be constructing the new lab for $1.4 million. The funds will come from the city’s budgeted and insurance money.
