Bayshore Will Get 'Reclaimed' Water

TAMPA -- South Tampa's reclaimed water project is expanding to Bayshore Boulevard.

The $600,000 expansion will serve Bayshore homeowners from Rome to Howard avenues.

It will connect to the system that provides recycled wastewater for lawn watering. It also will enable irrigation of public parkways along Bayshore.

When the expansion is completed, 22,000 fewer gallons of water a day will be taken from the Hillsborough River, officials said.

The expansion is slated to begin this fall and won't require removing asphalt from Bayshore Boulevard.
