The District's Rock Ponds Ecosystem Restoration Project will restore various coastal habitats and provide stormwater treatment to improve the water quality of runoff into Tampa Bay. This project is a part of the District's Surface Water Improvement Management Program. The restoration will help offset habitat losses suffered throughout Tampa Bay and will be valuable to the public for recreational and commercial fishing and will be critical to the thousands of coastal species that rely on Tampa Bay for habitat.
