Tampa Bay Water


Tampa Bay Water supplies wholesale drinking water to Hillsborough County, Pasco County, Pinellas County, New Port Richey, St. Petersburg and Tampa. We supply water to more than 2.4 million people through the governments we serve.

We are a non-profit, special district of the State of Florida created to plan, develop and deliver a high-quality drinking water supply, and we work to protect our water supply sources. We are a true regional utility, funded through the sale of water to our member governments.

Our members share the cost of developing new supplies, share in environmental stewardship, share voting rights equitably among the three counties and pay the same wholesale water rates. Tampa Bay Water was created by interlocal agreement among our member governments.

Our policies are established by a nine-member board of directors, with two elected commissioners from each member county and one elected representative from each member city.
