Swiftmud Gives OK For More Alafia River Withdrawals

Published: July 25, 2008
The Southwest Florida Water Management District issued a water shortage emergency order this week allowing Tampa Bay Water to withdraw additional water from the Alafia River in preparation for the dry season.

The water will be stored in the C.W. Bill Young Regional Reservoir south of Plant City until it is needed. As of Tuesday, the reservoir, which can hold 15 billion gallons of water, had only about 4.24 billion gallons stored.
