The Bay County Water Treatment Plant supplies potable water to the City of Panama City Beach by way of two main points of delivery, St. Andrews Bay at Hathaway Bridge and West Bay at SR 79. PC Beach’s current retail water infrastructure does not support supplying potable water to eastern PC Beach from West Bay or visa versa. Design and construct a water distribution system to support maximum distribution from one side of the island to the other in the event that one point of delivery is compromised.
Panama City Beach is a major tourist destination that receives approximately 17 million visitors annually and is a major economic driver for Bay County and accounts for approximately $2.5B in economy sales revenue. This project will further ensure the delivery of potable water and the viability of Panama City Beach.
