South County Water Repump Station Water Transmission Main to 19th Avenue, Hillsborough County, Florida. This project consists of a conducting a route analysis, design and permitting of a proposed water transmission main to connect the South County Water Repump Station to the existing water transmission main on 19th Avenue east of Interstate 75, and provide a connection point on 19th Avenue west of Interstate 75 for a future project. Phase I of the project consists of preparing an environmental assessment of the proposed alternative transmission main routes to evaluate potential wetland and environmental impacts. Phase II of the project involves the design and permitting of the preferred alignment.
