One Water serves to update, modernize and combine the previously separate Stormwater Management, Potable Water and Wastewater Sections of the City of Tampa Comprehensive Plan to reflect the interrelated nature of water. The update will replace these Sections in the Comprehensive Plan, incorporate water resources-related language from other Sections, and provide a framework for new City initiatives such as green infrastructure and coordinated water resources planning. Additionally, the Section update includes themes of environmental protection, equitable access and resiliency to the effects of climate change.
The language was developed via a collaborative effort with staff from various water resources disciplines across the City of Tampa. It builds on vision themes and feedback from respondents to the Live, Grow, Thrive 2045 vision engagement.
Supporting documents, presentations, and maps can be found at the bottom of this page under the Documents section.
