Dear Colonel Lee:

The 1972 Legislature, through the Water Resources Act of 1972 (Chapter 373,
Florida Statutes), created water management districts which include all areas
of the State. Enclosed are maps delineating the boundaries of the five dis-
tricts as they now exist and maps which will be effective as of July 1, 1975.
You will note that the new district boundaries do not correspond with the
boundaries of the federal projects involved, e.g., Four River Basins Project
and the Upper St. Johns Project.

In view of this change, perhaps it would be advantageous for a meeting to be
held between representatives of your district, of this Department, and of se-
lected water management districts, so that we may identify the federal and non-
federal problems involved. It may be necessary to initiate action to make ap-
propriate adjustments to ensure smooth transition from the existing to the new
project boundaries and responsibilities.

Mr. Charles M. Sanders, Director of our Division of Interior Resources, tele-
phone 488-7500, will be available to discuss this with you, should you have
further questions.

Your advice and assistance will be appreciated.
Sincerely yours,



Harmon W. Shields
Executive Director
