Tampa Utility Capital Improvement Projects
City of Tampa

Mayor Bob Buckhorn stands with the students from Witter Elementary at the Donut Pond Pump Station Ribbon Cutting on December 10, 2013. Donut Pond Pump Station is a new pump station located at the southwest corner of North 26th Street and East 113th Avenue. Construction was complete in the Fall of 2013.


The City of Tampa is continuing to invest in neighborhoods through an important utility infrastructure improvement program, collectively known as the Utility Capital Improvement Projects (UCAP). The City has selected CH2M HILL Constructors, Inc. as their design-builder to implement the program, while working as an extension of city staff. This program represents the opportunity to coordinate multiple improvements in neighborhoods city-wide while maximizing scheduling efficiency, minimizing impacts to residents and businesses, and capitalizing on opportunities to coordinate work for the best solutions.

Collectively, the projects are essential to maintaining reliable utility service for existing customers and position's the City to serve redevelopment and growth in the coming decades. The projects include installation of a new water transmission line, replacement of numerous water distribution lines, stormwater and transportation improvements.

UCAP Progress Reports are issued quarterly and contain a status report on many key metrics.

Pipeline construction is underway in several City of Tampa neighborhoods as the City replaces and upgrades its aging pipelines through the UCAP Program. Despite our best efforts, some residents and businesses may experience some inconvenience. Construction crews will work to minimize disruptions as much as possible during construction and restoration in your area.
