Tampa Bay Water's reservoir will close for two years to repair cracks; customers to foot the bill (By Craig Pittman, Times Staff Writer  Friday, June 5, 2009)

"At this point, Seeber said, no one can say for sure how much it will cost to fix the cracking problem, but one early estimate puts it in the neighborhood of $125 million nearly as much as the $146 million facility cost to build. Until the utility can figure out the full cost of the repair, no one knows how much rates will have to be increased"
