Joint effort: Agencies work to keep clean water flowing


elebratles


The South Florida.Water Management District-uses a system of locks, canals and pump
stations to manage the flow of water.

Water supply planning needed


By MayAnn Morris
Last week, we looked at the
way the sandy state of Florida has
been divided into five water man-'
agement districts because of
shared sources of water and land
character in each district. Our
readership, for the most part is
located in the South Florida
Water Management District.

Agencies work to
keep water flowing
SFWMD issues permits for pri-
vate, city or county water plants
to pump a certain amount of
water from the ground or lakes to
treat and deliver (for a price), to
the homes and businesses they
serve. (They know how much
will be needed, so they know'
how much can be allowed to
drain into the ocean.) The water
plants, in turn, are overseen by,
the state's Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection (DEP).
The DEP protects the quality.
of Florida's drinking water, its
rivers, lakes and wetlands. DEP
establishes the basis for setting
the standards of purity for the
.state's surface water and ground
water and monitors to be sure the
quality stays okay.
DEP also does the permit and
enforcement programs for our


drinking water, waste water
(sewer), septic tanks, wells and a
mrTiad of activities in wetlands
an.d other surface waters. This
agency also provides money to
build or improve domestic waste-
water and drinking water facili-
ties, to reclaim mined lands, and
to implement stormwater man-
agement and manage other
sources of water, like reclaimed
water for irrigation.

How SFWMD plans
for our water supply
SFWMD is divided into four
major water supply planning
regions: Kissimmee Basin (North
and South), Upper East Coast,
Lower East Coast and Lower
West Coast. Each regional water
supply plan is based on:
1. At least 20-year future plan-
ning and follows Subsection
373.0361(1) of the Florida


Statutes.
2. The impacts of future
demands on the water resources
that we have .
3. Water resource related nat-
ural systems like wetlands.
People in each of the four
regions have a say in SFWMD's
decisions through the Water
resource Advisory Committee
(WRAC) of SFWMD which acts
as liaison between SFWMD and
the people. Since each of the four
regions has its own unique set of
issues, the committee is made up
of a very diverse group of people
from each of the four regions of
SFWMD. Anyone can go to a
XV'RAC meeting to listen or ask
questions. Check on
www.sfwmd.gov, the district's
Web site.

Kissimmee Basin
Region: North, South
North: SFWMD studies
showed that projected popula-
tion increases meant sinkhole for-
mation, saltwater intrusion and a
shortage of water.
While the long-term, the 20-
year continued increased use of
the Floridan aquifer is question-

The baker and the roughneck


Edited by MaiyAnn Morris
From 197Z7 until her death in
2003, Independent Newspapers
of Florida was privileged to have
on staff a superb writer and histo-
rian, Twila Valentine. Mrs. Valen-
tine wrote much about the histo-
-ry of the people and places
around Lake Okeechobee and
about the lake itself. Together
with .Okeechobee's Betty
Williamson, president of the
Okeechobee Historical Society,
she co-authored a book, now in
its second printing, "Strolling
down Country Roads in Okee-
chobee."
The following article came
from several articles and Twila's
notes about Pogy Bill Collins and
Albert Berka.
Albert Berka was a Viennese
baker who came down to Okee-
chobee byway of Titusville some-
time in the latter part of 1914 or
the beginning of 1915 (two years
before John Kunkel Small of the
New York Botanical Garden and


A sE.es aboe t Flodda's
Plomers and his torn





around the same time as Ellis
Meserve, who opened a dry
goods store and married Faith,
one of the Raulerson daughters).
Anyway, Albert opened his bak-
ery next door to Uncle Charlie's
barbershop on Seventh Street
(nowW Second Street).
"He did a good business and
even had a boat delivering his
baked goods to the fishing camps
along the lake and all the way to
Moore Haven. When Conner's
Highway (SR 70) opened on July
5, 1924, Albert Berka baked the


cakes and pies and breads for the
barbecue held at Mr. Conner's
place. He also supplied the bread
and pies to Mr. Bryant's "Rough
House" on Taylor Creek, just out-
side town.
"Mr. Bryant's Rough House
was a favorite haunt of Pogy Bill
and his pals."
Pogy Bill Collins was a young,
head-drinking hard-fighting
roughneck who grew up hard on
the wrong side of the tracks and
usually, the wrong side of the law.
He came to Okeechobee proba-
bly around 1910 and found that
the free-wheeling life of commer-
cial fishing on the lake offered the
ready cash and the weekend free-
dom to enjoy his favorite pas-
times: drinking and fist-fighting.
Now, "Albert supplied the
bread the bread and pies which
strong liquors washed down the
gullets of fishermen as they gam-
bled.
See Recollections -Pageo2


This was the activity around the docks on Taylor Creek,
April 22, 1918. Barges brought fish into the creek where the
Florida East Coast Railroad ran along the creek. Boxcars
(roofs of cars at right)were loaded with fresh caught fish
and produce to be sent along their way to other parts of
Florida and the northeast.

able for southern Orange County
and northern Osceola County, the
immediate, short-term use of the
Floridan will continue. The water
supply plan for this region recom-
mends that continued water use in
the northern portion of the basin
needs a look at more data collec-
tion and investigation into the ideas
of uses of reclaimed water and
storm water, water conservation
and surface water use.
But SFWMD now has guidance
on the level of possible risk that
may result from future ground
water withdrawals and identified
where additional research efforts
should be focused.
In June of 2002, DeSoto, Hard-
ee. Highlands, and Polk Counties
joined to form the Heartland Water
Alliance (H\\Ai to address prob-
lems facing their water supply.
Southwest Florida Water Manage-
ment Districtl SWFWMD. had
* advised that. .b.the year 2020, there


would not be enough water for
these counties to support the peo-
ple there.
Shortly thereafter, the HWA
obtained cooperative funding from
Southwest Florida Water Manage-
ment District (SWFWMD) to pre-
pare a Water Supply Plan (WSP).
(State legislation requires local gov-
ernments to prepare a 10 0-year WSP
and amend their comprehensive
plans to help insure that it gets
done.) Most of the HWA area is
within SWFVWMD, but a small por-
tion of eastern Polk and Highlands
Counties is within SFWMD
South: Looking at the surface
water resources within the south-
ern planning area of the region, the
question was: how much water
would there be from the Lake Istok-
poga-Indian Prairie Basin? Right
now, there is not enough water
from Lake Istokpoga and surface
water runoff in the Indian Prairie
Basin to meet the projected 2020 1-
in- 10 (worst in 10 years) drought
demands for water under today's
management riles.
But, by usifig both Lake Okee-
chobee- and Lake istokpoga, the


son.;

area can meet the projected 2020
demands. This may require con-
struction of additional infrastruc-
ture to move water where needed.
The solution is an
operational/management change
of Lake Istokpoga, obtaining more
water from Lake Okeechobee and
local ground-water or the Kissim-
mee River.
More use of Lake Okeechobee
and the Kissimmee River are highly
controversial and depend on
resolving water quality issues and
addressing other ongoing projects
linked to the restoration efforts of
both the lake and the river.
Continued use of Lake Istok-
poga and future use of Lake Okee-
chobee are proposed through
development of plans including
pumps and control structures as
well as operational agreements
with land owners, tribal rights,
water quality discharges, and lake
regulation schedules among other
items. Water managers will look at
the Kissimmee River, together with
its restoration effort, to consider the
river as a fOture water supply.
In total, the KJissimmee Basin

Water Supply Plan has approximate-
ly $10 8 million dollars in projects to
be completed over the next five years
to study and darily the issues found
so far. Local governments and citi-
zens will play a key role in future
implementation of these recom-
mendations. Several recommenda-
tions in this plan call for sharing costs
with local partners while other rec-
ommendations require agreements
with local land owners and SFWMD.
SFWMD will continue invoking the
public in this process to help imple-
ment the recommendations.

Upper East Coast
In Martin and St. Lucie Counties,
in addition to the region's Water
Supply Plan, the Comprehensive
Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP)
will increase water resources by
changing the timing, retention and
freshwater flow to the coast via the
St. Lucie River and increase the
amount of fresh water for future use.

Recollections
Continued From Page 1
"One time, Mr. Brvant failed to
receive the orders Albert sent out in
large baskets by his helper. A group
of drunken fishermen set upon the
poor errand boy before he reached
the Rough House. The bo. escaped
through the scrub, but the bread
and pies met an untimely end in the
dirt of the i oad. Albert was enraged.
"He rushed to Taylor's Creek to


be welcomed by Pogy Bill's remark
to the boys, 'Here comes Albert;
now you're going to catch hell!'
Damages were slow in being col-
lected until Pogy Bill assumed com-
mand of the situation, 'Anyone leav-
in' this place admits he done it,' he
asserted, thereby gluing every foot
to the spot. 'Now,' continued the
self-proclaimed judge, jury and exe-
cutioner, 'every fella give Albert $5
for his pies!' Hands dove down into
pockets and $75 came down on the
table. The baker was content."

Product keeps the bugs from biting


By Daniel Shube
In a recent column I warned
everyone about the perils of expo-
sure to the sun. So now you know
to wear sunscreen to protect your
skin from the sun's dangerous
rays. There are many other ways
you can get in to trouble on the
golf course. I'm not talking about
bunkers and deep rough today.
How about insects?
, I was chatting with my boss
earlier and both of us.recounted
stories where we stumbled upon
a swarm of blood sucking mos-'
quitoes. I've also often .had to
apply remedies to itchy lumps
caused by red ants that hitched a
ride on my cart, and then tore into
my ankles. Those evenings I paid
the price for the fun time I had on
the links.
At this year's PGA Merchan-
dise Show I ran across a new


Fairways

and

Highways
by Daniel Shube


product that seems to work better
than others I have tried in
repelling these nasty buggers. It is
J called BugBand and as the name
implies, you wear it like a bracelet
on your wrist.
The University of Florida devel-.
oped BugBand. The active ingre-
dient in BugBand is Geraniol as
,opposed to the common insect'
repellent, DEET. As you. may have
heard, DEET is not the safest
product you can spray on your-


self. Geraniol has been tested to
be safe and is a natural, plant-
based substance. The EPA lists it
as generally safe and does not
require that it be registered.
For better protection against
ants, the product can be worn on
your ankle. Or use it on your belt
loop. In addition, an entire line of
BugBand products in lotion, spray
or individually packed towelettes
are available.
Remember, not only are insect


bites annoying, mosquitoes, ticks
and other insects carry disease.
For more information about Bug-
Band, visit BugBand.net or call
(800) 473-9467.

Last-minute
gifts for dad?
A favorite place of mine to
shop for last-minute Father's Day
gifts, is The Golf Warehouse
(TGW.com). They carry just
about anything that a golfing dad
would want. I often check their
specials and closeouts to find
great prices on useful items.
A recent visit to their site fea-
tured Foot-Joy shoes starting at
under $35. As an added bonus,
orders of over $75 (prior to June
14) will receive free second day
air shipping.

"It is worrisome that the decision
by APHIS was undertaken at a time
when USDA and the agriculture
industry had gone to great lengths to
urge that sound science be the
guidepost for animal health and
food safety standards," Loop
added."The long fight over reopen-
ing foreign markets that were dosed
to U.S. beef as a result of the BSE or
"mad cow disease" scare has trou-
bling corollaries to this new situation
facing Florida's citrus industry.
"APHIS should carefully evalu-
ate the restrictions on the move-
ment of plant and animal products
to ensure that such restrictions are
science-based." stated Loop.
Loop commended U.S. Senator
Mel Martinez and Florida Commis-
sioner of Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Charles Bronson
for their efforts on this issue, and
their commitment to finding solu-
tions for Florida's farmers.
While the announcement of this
quarantine is difficult to accept, Loop
said Florida Farm Bureau appreciates
the USDAs and Secretary of Agricul-
ture Mike Johanns' commitment to
Florida's farmers evidenced by
Johann announcing the availability
of $100 million to compensate Flori-
da citrus growers and commercial
citrus nursery growers for losses
incurred as a result of the citrus
canker eradication program.
"While the prospect of the future
impact of this rule is troubling and
comes at a time when Florida agri-
culture is already bearing the brunt
of multiple financial challenges, the
announcement of this new money
is very welcome news to Florida's
citrus growers." Loop concluded.

OKEECHOBEE COUNTY CITY OF OKEECHOBEE
STORMWATER QUESTIONNAIRE

Okeechobee County and the City of Okeechobee along with the South Florida Water
Management District are currently in the process of identifying problem areas and potential
solutions with regards to flooding and conveyance of Storm Runoff in the City and the County.
We would like to get your input on this subject and have a few questions that will only take a
couple of minutes of your time to answer.

OPTIONAL: Although not required, providing your name, address and telephone number will
make it possible to locate the area of concern. Thank you for your assistance.

NAME (print): PHONE:

ADDRESS:


Stormwater runoff is rainfall that can accumulate after a storm event. Many times due to the
severity or length of the storm, runoff accumulates to a level which floods private property and
roads.

With this in mind, have you:

1. Noticed any ponding or flooding problems in your immediate area (where you work or
live) after a storm? For example, significant amounts of water in the streets, parking
lots, on right-of-ways? Please be specific: provide a street address.

Yes No





2. Where have you seen other problems? Please provide an address, name of a
building or cross streets where the problem is located. If you are aware of more than
one problem area, please provide a numbered listing of locations:




3. When do these problems occur? Please check one. If more than one problem was
identified in question #2 above, use that same number to answer questions #3 and #4 also.
___ (a) After a short rain (up to an hour)
___ (b) After 2 hours of rain
(c) Only after an intense storm

4. Can you identify the cause and duration of the problem and/or a possible solution?




5. If the only way to correct the problems) that you have listed above was to pay a
stormwater fee, would you support a City/County-wide fee on all businesses and
residents to correct these problems and maintain the solutions?
Yes No

6. I am a resident of the City County

PLEASE SUBMIT COMPLETED QUESTIONNAIRE BY JUNE-15, 2006.
COMPLETED QUESTIONNAIRES MAY BE SUBMITTED AT:
