Cherrywood Avenue Water Main Extension


Hillsborough County Public Utilities will be installing approximately 632 feet of 6-inch water pipeline on Cherrywood Avenue, 1,001 feet of 6-inch water pipeline on Lake Magdalene Circle, and 195 feet of 2-inch water pipeline on Kaye Drive. The project will provide a connection between Cherrywood Avenue and Rome Avenue, and water pipelines within the Lake Magdalene community to improve water quality and distribution. 

Purpose of Project

The project is part of the Countywide Potable Water Main Extension Program, a long-term program implemented by Hillsborough County Public Utilities to improve water connection access in areas that do not currently have potable water, but are immediately adjacent to our distribution system.

The new pipelines will provide an opportunity for residents who are currently served drinking water from wells to connect to the County’s utility system if they choose.
