Crystal Lagoons installation at Epperson development in Wesley Chapel

Crews finished filling a 7.5-acre man-made lagoon near Tampa with water, completing the first amenity at a U.S. real estate development featuring Crystal Lagoons technology.

Tampa-based Metro Development Group put the Crystal Lagoons amenity at its Epperson development in Wesley Chapel, a landlocked suburb of Tampa.

Epperson is the first of five Florida developments that Metro Development is building with a body of water that incorporates the technology of Crystal Lagoons, an international company with U.S. headquarters in Miami.

In the first quarter of 2018, Metro Development will break ground for a Chrystal Lagoons amenity at its Southshore Bay development in southern Hillsborough County.

Artificial lagoons incorporating Crystal Lagoons’ technology require substantially less chemical treatment and energy for filtration than traditional swimming pools. They also require substantially less water than a park of a same size or an 18-hole golf course.

The features of Metro Development’s Crystal Lagoons amenity at Epperson will include a water slide, private cabanas, swim-up bar and family beach. — Mike Seemuth
