Curiosity Creek Watershed Management Master Plan
Hillsborough County, Fla. (Oct. 30, 2017) - Hillsborough County residents can learn about master plan updates and drainage projects for the Curiosity Creek watershed in northwest Hillsborough County during a public information meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 8. Hosted by Hillsborough County Public Works, the meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. and will take place at Buchanan Middle School, 1001 W. Bearss Ave. in Tampa.
The meeting will have an open-house format, with project displays available for viewing. Attendees can review, ask questions, and comment on the Stormwater Fee Capital Improvement Program project.
This work is part of the Countywide Watershed Master Plan update. This update provides the County with valuable information on flooding within the Curiosity Creek watershed, including a revised hydrology and hydraulics model that is used by the County, the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD), and local developers as the best available information for project analysis and permitting. The project also identifies flood-prone roadway areas and develops conceptual projects and cost estimates that would help to solve these roadway flooding issues.
The 3.6 square mile portion of the watershed located within unincorporated Hillsborough County is generally bordered by Lake Magdalene Boulevard to the north; Lake Magdalene, Lake Carroll, and Lake Platt to the west; Interstate 275 and Nebraska Avenue to the east; and Country Club Drive to the south. The remaining portion of the watershed is located within the City of Tampa.
Information presented at the meeting will also be available on the Curiosity Creek Watershed Management Master Plan webpage.
