Tampa Plans Pipeline Backbone to Regional Reclaimed Water Supply System

The Howard F. Curren Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant produces high quality water that historically has been largely discharged to Hillsborough Bay. In the past, the general demand for treated wastewater was low, as potable water sources were plentiful and relatively inexpensive. This paper summarizes the study of the feasibility of delivering reclaimed water to the Tampa regional area. The paper addresses supply and demand issues and infrastructure issues, and describes procedures used in selecting routes for over 37 km (20 mi) of transmission pipelines up to 1200 mm (48 in.) in diameter. The paper also describes the regional partnerships that are being developed to provide viability to this project.
