What is the purpose of the project?
The purpose of this project is to connect an isolated well in Northwest Hillsborough County to the larger wholesale system in order to increase the capacity to Hillsborough County’s Lake Park Water Treatment Plant. From there, the treated water will be distributed to County water customers in the Northwest Hillsborough area. The project also includes mechanical updates at the well.
Why is this project needed?
The Northwest Hillsborough Well No. 7 Intertie Project will supply an additional 4 million gallons per day (mgd) of drinking water to the residents of Northwest Hillsborough County, including those who live along the pipeline route.
