In response to a community request for a wastewater collection system, Hillsborough County Public Utilities has completed a feasibility study to evaluate construction alternatives. The recommendation from this evaluation is to construct a sewer pipeline along Rocky Creek Drive, and residents will abandon their septic tanks and connect to the County’s pipeline.
The project includes the installation of a sewer pipeline and would require residents to install a sewage pump station and abandon their septic tanks, if they decide to connect to the County’s pipeline.
Under the current proposal, the County would pay for the installation of the sewer system and provide connections for each property. Residents would be responsible for paying for their individual grinder pump station and installation on their property.
Before the County funds the construction of this project, all property owners impacted by the project will be surveyed to see if there is a community desire for this project and willingness to connect within one year.
Cost & Funding
The total cost of the proposed project is $350,000. The project would be funded through the Capital Improvement Program.
