Tampa Bay, Hillsborough, Phytoplankton, Biochemical Oxygen Demand, BOD, Phosphorus, Nutrient
The City of Tampa was implicated as a major point source polluter of Hillsborough Bay based on its release since 1951 of primary treated wastewater effluent into the bay. To alleviate nutrient loads into Hillsborough Bay, the City of Tampa upgraded its Hooker's Point facility to advanced wastewater treatment (AWT) with a 60 MGD capacity. The transformation from primary treatment to advanced was successive.
