Polk County Utilities Stays in Control

Polk County, Florida’s fourth largest county, spans 2,010 sq miles of swampy lowlands between Tampa and Orlando. Known as the lightning capital of the Western Hemisphere, Polk County experiences numerous hurricanes, thunderstorms and a large portion of the state’s one million cloud-to-ground lightning strikes per year. Together, the flat terrain, climate and large geographical area make water service a challenge. Gravity-driven distribution doesn’t work, and power outages frequently disrupt pump operation.
