WATCH LIVE: Gov. DeSantis to give update on Piney Point
MANATEE COUNTY, Fla. – Gov. DeSantis is holding a news conference on Tuesday to give an update on Piney Point.
Crews worked to prevent the collapse of a large wastewater pond in the Tampa Bay area last week while evacuating the area to avoid a “catastrophic flood.” The evacuation has since been lifted.
The reservoir initially held about 480 million gallons of contaminated water, but much was drained away once the leak was discovered.
DeSantis is expected to begin speaking at 9:30 a.m.
