TOPIC: Future Regional Water Supplies: Overview of Tampa Bay Water 2018 Long-Term Master Water Plan

Tampa Bay Water is a wholesale supplier of water in the Tampa Bay region, serving more than 2.35 million customers through its six Member Governments. The system is comprised of several wellfields with an average annual permitted capacity of 120 million gallons per day (mgd), several groundwater treatment plants, a 120-mgd surface water treatment plant, a 15.5-billion gallon reservoir, a 25 mgd desalination plant, and miles of large diameter transmission main that serve the Member Governments. Tampa Bay Water was originally a single-source groundwater system but began diversifying its water supply portfolio in the late 1990s to include surface water supplies and desalination to meet the region’s growing demands and reduce reliance on groundwater; this diversification was achieved by way of the Long-Term Master Water Plan (LTMWP). Every 5 years, Tampa Bay Water updates the LTMWP to ensure the provision of adequate supplies over a 20-year planning horizon, considering annual forecast demand analyses, available supply, climate variability, permitting, public input, project costs, and infrastructure needs. For this 5-year cycle of the LTMWP, it is estimated that new sources of supply will be needed by the 2028. Following the completion of the 2018 LTMWP, the Agency is undergoing feasibility studies on potential new water supply projects.
