HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. — Tampa Bay Water is planning to construct a new water transmission pipeline.

The new water main will ensure people living in Hillsborough County south of State Road 60 have adequate supplies of high-quality drinking water for decades to come.

FULL CIRCLE: What's in your water and where does it comes from?

The pipeline will connect Tampa Bay Water’s facilities in Brandon to one of three locations in the county: Falkenburg Road, in the Balm area or the Lithia Water Treatment Plant.

The final site will be determined after Tampa Bay Water and Hillsborough County receive input from residents over the next several months via public surveys and meetings.

The first step in collecting feedback is a public survey to determine what criteria officials should place the most emphasis on when determining the route of the planned pipeline.
