Photo of information provided in press releasePinellas County, the city of Clearwater and other agency partners that make up the Wastewater/Stormwater Partnership will meet virtually on Zoom on Thursday, June 25, at 9:30 AM to provide an update on the work that they are doing to protect water quality throughout Pinellas County.

The Partnership’s Technical Working Group—a body comprised of technical representatives from utility and stormwater agencies within Pinellas County—will present updates to the Steering Committee regarding the progress and outcomes of specific projects outlined in the action plan, including:

• Inflow and infiltration studies
• Addressing insufficient system capacity
• Rehabilitation/replacement programs for aging infrastructure
• Stormwater drainage improvements
• Resource sharing/maximization initiatives
• Developing a public dialogue program
• Developing legislation, regulations and local ordinances

The Wastewater/Stormwater Task Force was formed in October 2016 as a joint initiative to address countywide wastewater and stormwater issues brought about by heavy rainfall events. The Task Force has since evolved to a Partnership, allowing further collaboration among county, municipal, business, and community partners to strategize and communicate on an ongoing basis.  The countywide team is comprised of leaders and staff from Pinellas County Government, 17 municipal partners and three private utility systems.

The Technical Working Group meets regularly to evaluate each utility system’s status in regard to rehabilitation and replacement projects that are underway and/or planned, collaborate on common approaches to remediate system-wide issues and discuss detailed future mitigation plans to avoid sanitary sewer overflows during extreme weather events.
