Wastewater Treatment Master Plan Stakeholder Group, Tallahassee, Florida As a member of the Carollo Engineering team, Wendy Grey Land Use Planning was responsible for stakeholder involvement. The City was updating its wastewater treatment master plan and faced public concerns on several fronts. Environmental groups were concerned about the impacts of the City’s sprayfield on the environment. There was also concern about the potential health impacts of reusing treated wastewater on recreational areas.
