who we are
Tampa Bay Water is a regional water supply authority that provides wholesale water to three cities and three counties in the Tampa Bay region.
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.
Our responsibilities include:
- Planning, developing, producing and delivering a high-quality drinking
Continuously meeting the wholesale drinking water needs of Hillsborough
County, Pasco County, Pinellas County, New Port Richey, St. Petersburg and
Tampa (about 186 million gallons every day).
- Advocating for the protection of the public’s water resources.
Tampa Bay Water is a non-profit, special district of the state 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.
