|Honorable Randolph Hodges, Director
SDepartment of Natural Resources
Larson Building
j Tallahassee, Florida 32304
Dear Senator Hodges:

We have just received a detailed permit application from Florida Power and
Light Company for authorization to divert water from the Little Manatee
River for use as condenser cooling water for a power plant planned for con-
struction in Manatee County. The point of diversion of the water lies
within this District, but the power plant site itself does not.

A cursory examination of the permit application makes it clear that two im-
portant questions for this District and the Department of Natural Resources
are involved. They are:

i. Chapter 373 makes it clear that the Department is to compute the "aver-
age minimum flow" of a stream to assist in the determination of maximum
quantities of water that may be diverted from the stream. We hereby
request that the "average minimum flow" for the Little Manatee River be
determined for the point as shown on the attached area map.

2. This application has implications of water allocation from a surface
stream far larger -- and probably more controversial -- than any previ-
ously considered by this District. We request your assistance as to
the handling of the permit.

We realize that we have much of the data that you may wish to use in the
development of the "average minimum flow" and that our staff may have other
information that would be useful to you in replying to this request. .e
will be pleased to provide whatever personnel and other assistance you re-
quest in order to help us expedite an answer to Florida Power and Light
Company as soon as possible.
H Very truly yours,



DALE TWACHTMANN
