TBW seeks input from Tampa Bay community

Staff report

Tampa Bay Water is seeking community input on the region’s future drinking water supply as it updates its Long-Term Master Water Plan.

The agency is asking residents, businesses and community groups to complete an online survey at www.tampabaywater.org/FutureWater. The survey will be available until August 23, 2013.

Tampa Bay Water is asking for input on seven future water project concepts, source water protection and regional water efficiency efforts.

Updated every five years, this 20-year plan is a holistic approach to understanding the capabilities of its current system, helping its members with water efficiency programs, adhering to regulatory requirements for water quality and protecting regional drinking water sources.

The plan studies the current water supply system to determine if there are operational efficiencies that could yield additional water supply. It also identifies potential water supply projects that could meet the future drinking water needs of the Tampa Bay region.
