Reclaimed Water Interconnect in Tampa Bay — More Than a Pipeline
Abstract:The western portion of the Tampa Bay region is served by a number of wastewater utilities. All of the utilities use reclaimed water as part of their effluent management system. Many couple reclaimed water use with a surface water discharge. These utilities largely have reclaimed water systems that are not interconnected with each other. As a result, one utility may have excess reclaimed water that is discharged, while another cannot meet reclaimed water demand, such as for irrigation. The utilities operated by the Counties of Hillsborough, Pasco, and Pinellas and those operated by the Cities of Largo and Clearwater (within Pinellas County) are included in this study of how an interconnection could be provided to improve the percentage of reclaimed water used in the region and reduce the quantity of nitrogen discharged through the surface water discharge.
