A project to improve water quality in area of Limona Street, Parsons Avenue, will be discussed

The Hillsborough County Public Utilities Department has scheduled a public meeting on Nov. 20 to discuss a project that will improve water quality and fire protection for residents in the area of Limona Street and Parsons Avenue in Brandon.

The $350,000 project will construct 2,520 feet of new, 6-inch water pipeline along Limona Street, Oak Avenue, Evans Street, and North Moon Avenue. Five new fire hydrants also will be installed. Construction is expected to begin in spring 2014 and last approximately 90 days.

The work is part of the Countywide Potable Water Main/Distribution Lines Renewal and Replacement Project, a long-term program to improve water quality by connecting certain lines which now dead end. The renewal and replacement program is funded through the Water Enterprise’s Capital Improvement Program.

New pipeline segments also will provide an opportunity for those residents who are currently served by drinking water wells to connect to the County’s utility system, if they choose.

County staff will be at the meeting to talk about the project, and to answer any questions residents may have.

DATE: Wednesday, Nov. 20
TIME: 6:30 p.m.
PLACE: Brandon Recreation Center, 502 E. Sadie St.
