At approximately 8:00 a.m. Monday morning, the U.S. Coast Guard Sector St. Petersburg received a report of possible pollution in the Pithlachascotee River. Pollution responders were dispatched to the scene with the Port Richey Fire Department. Responders from both agencies patrolled the area, finding a grey, unrecoverable sheen. U.S. Coast Guard pollution responders and the Fire Department did not find a source, and observed that the sheen present would naturally dissipate. Tuesday, U.S. Coast Guard pollution responders went out with a drone and noted the sheen was naturally dissipating. The Coast Guard Pollution Response Team continues to investigate this occurrence, any information or new reports of pollution may be directed to the National Response Center at 800-424-8802.
Don’t miss the next Town Hall Meeting! Please join the Mayor and City Council on Tuesday, December 5, 2023, at 6:00 p.m.
This unique opportunity is structured differently than our typical City Council Meeting. Town Hall Meetings are an open forum allowing citizens to ask questions to the Mayor and Council. The meeting format gives the public the ability to learn and gain additional knowledge about our City.
