Meeting: Sun City Mobile Home Park water pipeline construction
Meeting: Sun City Mobile Home Park water pipeline construction

Ruskin, Florida -- The Hillsborough County Public Utilities Department has scheduled a public meeting on Tuesday, April 23, to discuss a project that connects the Sun City Utilities Water System (Sun City Mobile Home Park) to Hillsborough County's water distribution system.

The mobile home community is located in Ruskin, east of U.S. Highway 41 and south of the Little Manatee River.

Affected residents are currently Hillsborough County water customers and are provided drinking water from two wells, which are showing signs of possible saltwater intrusion.

The project will construct a water pipeline from an existing connection at 24th Avenue SW and 7th Street SW in Ruskin, including crossing beneath the Little Manatee River, to the mobile home park.

The project also includes the installation of four new fire hydrants.

The $600,000 project is in the design phase, with construction scheduled to begin in spring 2014. The project is funded through the Water Enterprise's Capital Improvement Program.

County staff will be at the meeting on April 23 to talk about the project, and to answer any questions residents may have.

The meeting is being held Tuesday, April 23 at 6:30 p.m. at the Neighborhood Service Center in Ruskin.
