We are a special Board and Council established by the Florida Legislature* to monitor activities and actions in the Hillsborough River Corridor. The river begins in west central Florida, and enters Tampa Bay in the center of the City of Tampa. River Board recommendations for river management are forwarded to the local political bodies, regulatory agencies and others involved with the river’s overall management for consideration and implementation.
