FROM: RAY MC CLURE, Supervisor of Permits
RE: Monthly Data Sheet Submissions

A meeting with FP&L was held to examine problems which have been occurring
since 1974 with FP&L's diversion reports. Those in attendance are listed
on the attached sheet.
Our desire was to establish a reporting procedure which would be simple and
accurate and to encourage FPL to discontinue reporting values which do not
reflect actual diversions. FPL's desire was to show us their diversion
monitoring equipment and to explain why their current reports have been so
complicated and unrepresentative of their actual operation.
The meeting was well organized and key FP5L personnel were on hand to
answer all our technical questions. The following points were generally
agreed upon.
1. The Permit Agreeenta specifies by Amended Exhibit 8 that all water
diversion will be continent upon river stage and time of year but it
does not state how often to make gage readings during a 24 hour period
nor how often to adjust the diversion quantity as the river stage
fluctuates up and down. Presently the computer receives gage readings
Severe 3 seconds and the gate valves which throttle the'pumped water are
activated -nstantaneously. Everyone seemed to agree th.s was frequent
;i enough.
2. Regarding data submissions, the Permit Agreement does not specify what
readings should be made, nor when they should be made. The current
report form includes too much useless information. No one at the
District or FP&L can remember who devised it or why, therefore, in the
atmediate months ahead we will try t1strplera ore informative version
of the currentform which will be submitted monthly.
The frequently reported averages in the past have been the result of two
factors. One Is a problem with the flow neter/dtscharge pipe system which
i they *formed us has been solved; and two, the manner tin which the computer
activates the pumps and adjusts the gate valves to arrive at the correct
allowable diversion, which is determined by the program written into the
automated system Whether this program should be rewritten or modlfled so
that overages do not occur, even ronentarily, is as yet an unresolved
Issue which needs to be further explored.
