Calm Harbor Water Supply

Description

Hillsborough County Public Utilities will be installing approximately 3,800 feet of 8-inch water pipeline along Hanna Road to connect the Calm Harbor community with the Northwest Potable Water System. The project will also replace 750 feet of pipeline within the community and provide fire protection.

Purpose of Project

The purpose of this project is to connect Calm Harbor Community with Hillsborough County Northwest Potable Water System.

Two wells service the small community water system and supplies water to the Calm Harbor Community of 28 homes. One of the wells is no longer in operation and needs to sealed and abandoned. If any issues arise with the current controller or pump, the only operational well would need to be taken offline leaving the community without water.

  • All areas affected by construction will be restored to pre-construction or better condition
  • Excavation work can sometimes cause an accidental water pipeline break or similar problem
  • Should any water service interruption occur, instructions for a precautionary boil water notice will be issued with a door hanger
