Issue impacts irrigation water; drinking water is safe to drink and useHillsborough County, Fla.
(Jan. 31, 2024) – Hillsborough County Water Resources crews continue to work on the issue at the Northwest Regional Water Reclamation Facility that has impacted the use of reclaimed water for some customers in the northwest area of the county.
At this time, reclaimed water in northwest Hillsborough County continues to be shut down for customers who reside west of Interstate 275 and just south of Van Dyke Road.
The larger neighborhoods affected include Carrollwood, Westchase, Northdale, and Avila. An estimated 11,000 homes are impacted.
Hillsborough County Water Resources reminds residents that this outage only impacts the reclaimed water used for irrigation. This does not affect drinking water.
Drinking water is safe for everyone to use and drink.
Residential customers in the impacted area won’t be able to use reclaimed water until repairs are complete, and the sprinkler systems on reclaimed water will not function while repairs continue.
Hillsborough County Water Resources will provide an update as soon as it’s available.
