On June 24, 2012 rains from Tropical Storm Debby and then subsequent rains inundated the Duck Slough Watershed area. Particularly hard hit were the communities of Thousand Oaks and Trinity Oaks.
On August 9th, a community meeting was held with County staff, County Commissioners, elected officials, agency officials and residents from both communities. As a follow up to the community meeting, a neighborhood task force was formed which consists of community leaders, County and Regulatory staff and consultants hired by the County to review the problem and design and permit the solutions. These meetings are held on a regular schedule with the Pinellas Anclote (West) Task Force.
