The David L. Tippin Water Treatment Facility (DLTWTF) produces up to 120 million gallons of drinking water daily. This facilitates a service population of approximately 650,000. DLTWTF is operational 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year. The facility is capable of storing up to 1 billion gallons in the Aquifer Storage and Recovery System, when excess water is available.
The “production” of water is the result of treating water from the Hillsborough River into drinkable water. The organic by-product of this process is dewatered and returned for processing. Additionally, the organic by-product is dried and used in the fertilizer industry.
DLTWTF is required to comply with regulatory agencies for drinking water quality at the both the state and federal levels.
There are four sections at DLTWTF, with an authorized staff of 90.
