That’s why Tampa Bay Water invests in outreach and education efforts through its Source Water Protection Mini-Grant Program. The mini-grants range from $2,000-$10,000 and are a cost-effective way to improve public understanding and participation in protecting regional water sources.

Comprehensive Forecast for Better Business Decisions

Each year, Tampa Bay Water updates its water demand projections, which are the basis for several business decisions. First, the utility’s annual budget is based on projections of what the member governments will need for that fiscal year. Part of the budgeting process includes determining what sources to use to meet those demands in an environmentally sound and cost effective manner. Second, the demand forecast is used for long-term planning to ensure Tampa Bay Water’s supply can meet demand 10 or 20 years in the future.

2015: The Year in Water…and what is Expected for 2016

Like many businesses, Tampa Bay Water provides a quality product to its customers. Each year, it must budget how much of that product it believes will be needed and then make sure there is enough supply to meet that demand. Outside factors sometimes play a part in changing that demand, so Tampa Bay Water must adjust for those factors accordingly. Of course, the product we are speaking of is water, and the outside factors that affected its demand levels in 2015 were weather – including record-breaking summer rainfalls.
