Old Tampa Bay is one of the largest watersheds in Pinellas County.  It encompasses many different subbasins such as Allen’s Creek, Alligator Creek and Alligator Lake, Bishop Creek, Long Branch, and Roosevelt Creek.  The discharge from this watershed combines with the discharge from the Tarpon Bypass Canal and forms the open water portion of this watershed, spanning from Oldsmar to the North down past the Bayside and Howard Frankland Bridges, past Feathersound to the Gandy Bridge in St Petersburg.
