Greenhills Drive Drainage Improvements Open House Meeting

Hillsborough County, Fla. (Sept. 19, 2016) - Hillsborough County residents can learn about a planned project to improve stormwater drainage on and around Greenhills Drive in Valrico during a public information meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 21. Hosted by Hillsborough County Public Works, the meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. and will take place at the Bloomingdale Regional Public Library, 1906 Bloomingdale Ave. in Valrico.

The meeting will have an open house format, and attendees can review and comment on the proposed plans with Public Works representatives.

Public Works will present details of the $1 million Capital Improvement project to area residents. Plans include replacing the Greenhills Drive drainage pump station and constructing a new 2-acre retention pond at the corner of South Valrico Road and Lithia-Pinecrest Road. The project will also connect the Golf Heights Circle pump station to the new pond and create an outfall from the pond to the existing drainage system at South Valrico. Work is expected to begin in October 2016 and should be completed by spring 2017.
