Downtown Water Main Replacement

Overview

The Downtown Water Main Replacement Project is bounded by State Road 580, Lafayette Blvd., and Tampa Bay. The project serves as the second phase of work that began before the economic downturn in 2008. The improvements will include replacement of deteriorating galvanized water piping with HDPE and PVC piping and extension of reclaimed water service to the downtown region that is not already served. The work will improve water quality, pressure, fire protection and provide a less expensive alternative to potable water irrigation.
