Lake Tarpon Septic-to-Sewer Conversion Project

Project Status

Design: In progress

Pinellas County Utilities (PCU) is planning a wastewater collection improvement project in the Lake Tarpon area that will allow businesses and property owners to connect to PCU sewer service for more reliable and environmentally responsible wastewater services. This project is part of a countywide effort to protect groundwater and improve the quality of our region’s natural water systems by eliminating septic tanks and replacing aging wastewater system infrastructure. The project will include the design and construction of new wastewater pump stations, pipelines and service laterals needed to connect properties to the existing PCU wastewater collection system.
