Based upon Chapter 378, Florida Statutes, and Chapter 357-1
of the Florida Administrative Code, we are of the opinion that
Florida Power Corporation must have a permit from the Southwest
Florida Water Management District on the Little Manatee River,
even though the place where it plans to withdraw water is out-
side of the boundary of the Southwest Florida Water Management
District. I am writing you this letter because of a letter from
SMr. R. J. Gardner to Mr. Feaster, dated December 14, 1972, a
copy of which was sent to you.
Yours very truly,
cc: Mr. Donald Feaster /
