The Hillsborough is a river of contrasts that over the last 100 years has been Tampa’s primary drinking water source, a wildlife refuge for kayakers and a suburban and industrial sewage receptacle.

Join Dr. Massey for a fascinating look at the history of a mysterious river most Tampa residents come into contact with every day, but few ever think about.
