The treatment plant is a state-of-the-art facility that treats all wastewater discharged to the City of Tampa system. The plant has a design capacity of 96 million gallons per day, average daily flow. The final product, or effluent water, is discharged to Hillsborough Bay or used as reclaimed water for cooling and irrigation. This high quality water meets all state and federal requirements.
