We Want Your Feedback on Potential South Hillsborough Wellfield

Tampa Way Water is considering a new wellfield in southern Hillsborough County to meet growing water needs and wants your feedback. You can learn about the project by watching a video at, and then provide your input through a brief online survey.

The Tampa Bay region will need 10-20 million gallons of new water per day for 2028-2038 to meet the needs of its growing population. Tampa Bay Water is investigating several options to fulfill that need, including a new 7.5-million-gallon per day wellfield in south Hillsborough County using groundwater withdrawal credits from Hillsborough County’s South Hillsborough Aquifer Recharge Project, or SHARP.

Tampa Bay Water will hold a virtual public meeting on the potential wellfield Tuesday, Aug. 24, 2021, at 6:30 p.m. to speak with residents live. The video gives you the opportunity to learn about the project and provide feedback at your leisure. For those wishing to attend the virtual meeting, pre-registration is required. To register, visit

Tampa Bay Water’s board of directors will consider public input, along with results from ongoing feasibility studies, when selecting the region's next water supply project by December 2022.
