The Tampa Water Department will demonstrate its ongoing commitment towards improving the health and safety of its residents by kicking off a year-long pilot study of a new technology for treating drinking water. This test pilot at the David L. Tippin Water Treatment Facility (DLTWTF) represents the first large-scale test of a pioneering technology, known as Suspended Ion Exchange (SIX), in the United States. It represents the first of several infrastructure upgrade projects funded through the City’s PIPES initiative and is part of a $300 million-dollar, multi-year investment to modernize water treatment facilities and improve the City’s ability to provide safe, clean drinking water for its customers.
