BRADENTON, Fla. — A federal judge has denied Tampa Bay Water’s motion for a new trial in its case involving the design of Florida’s largest reservoir that began to crack shortly after opening in 2005.

The ruling means that the regional water supplier will move forward with an appeal. At the same time, the agency is preparing to sell bonds to pay for a portion of the repairs to the 15.5 billion-gallon facility.
