Commission Action Paves Way for Feather Sound Water Quality Project

On Tuesday, Nov. 20, the Pinellas County Commission unanimously approved an interlocal agreement with the Tampa Bay Estuary Program for the Channel 5 and Feather Sound Restoration project for a maximum of $500,000. The work aims to reduce nitrogen loading from the Feather Sound area and improve water quality in Tampa Bay. The regional stormwater treatment project, as proposed, includes improvements to Roosevelt Channel 5, the northernmost major drainage channel within the Roosevelt Watershed, as well as improved drainage and tidal habitat for recreationally important fish species, according to a staff report.
