Paving the Way. We hope you enjoy our video.

Paved road with white lines and "Paving the Way" written in yellow

Pasco County Public Works customers sometimes ask:
"Why does it take so long to pave a road?" 
Some projects can take a little longer than others, but Pasco County strives to finish paving projects on time - while making sure repairs are done safely and properly. 
In this short video, we demonstrate the two processes Pasco County uses to pave roads. Our goal is to make sure there are not bumps in the road, so to speak, to ensure a smooth drive for everyone who uses Pasco's roads. 

Flood relief. Introducing Pasco's Automated Floodgates

Floodgates with signage "Pasco County Flood Relief"

Our automated floodgates help Pasco get out ahead of potential neighborhood and street flooding issues. The automated system allows our Public Works team to open and close gates remotely - instead of requiring them to manually (and slowly) crank the gates open. 

Magnolia Valley pumphouse
Special thanks to our partner, Southwest Florida Water Management District

Pumphouse with pipes running from the building's bay area into water filled with lily pads

The Magnolia Valley community is home to a new pumphouse and refurbished pumps.
Through a cooperative funding initiative with the Southwest Florida Water Management District, a new pumphouse was built on Rowan Road in New Port Richey. The pumphouse features two rollup doors, two exhaust fans, an entrance doorway and an electrical panel.
The pumphouse will prolong the life of the pumps by shielding them from weather elements. Not to mention making the area more aesthetically pleasing to view.
Two existing pumps – one 23-inch electric and one 36-inch diesel – were also refurbished through the cooperative funding.
The electric pump runs daily to keep lake levels at the permitted elevations. The diesel pump runs during a huge flooding event or if power is lost in the community.
