KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Florida. – SpaceX is seeking approval for a new plan to support its historic missions.

In an application to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, SpaceX is seeking to build a wastewater treatment facility at Kennedy Space Center.

A draft permit says the facility would serve the SpaceX property that millions of people were introduced to last year during the Inspiration4 mission.

The project says water from Hangar X’s cooling system would be dumped into stormwater ponds, then when it rains heavily, SpaceX would send up to 3,000 gallons of that wastewater down a channel that ends in the Indian River.

SpaceX did not respond Wednesday when News 6 asked to know more about what’s in the sewage.

Urged by Nathan Slusher of Titusville who chairs Brevard’s Libertarian Party, county commissioners voted Tuesday to call for a public meeting on the proposal.

“We got a map and it just shows arrows going into the lagoon,” Slusher told the stewards.

The county said the DEP would determine when and where a public meeting would take place.

The draft permit states that the sewage would not be chemically treated, but would be filtered and the DEP noted that the sewage would be harmless to the lagoon.

The DEP has also indicated that it intends to approve the plan unless something changes due to public comments.

Space Florida said there was a sewage system in Cape Town and it flowed to a treatment plant on the Space Force operations side.
