Department of Natural Resources (Continued)


Division of Interior Resources


AUTHORITY: Chapters 373, 374, 377, 378 and certain specific sections of Chapters 370 and 211, Florida Statutes.

ORGANIZATION AND RESPONSIBILITY: The Division of Interior Resources has organized its general duties and responsibilities into the following three
bureaus, which contain a number of activities that may be briefly summarized as follows:

Water Resources The administration, coordination and enforcement of laws and regulations pertaining to the water resources of the State;
administration of laws and regulations pertaining to control of artesion wells and salt water barrier lines; the preparation of a comprehensive
plan for development, utilization and conservation of the water resources of the State; guidance and coordination of all flood control and
water management districts; preparation of budgets for the Water Resources Development Account and coordinating the releases therefrom.

Waterways The preparation and maintenance of a current comprehensive plan for development of a statewide system of commercial and recreational
waterways, programming, scheduling and coordination of elements of the waterways program with cooperating and participating local, regional,
state and federal agencies. Effecting state-level general supervision, control and administration of navigation districts and agencies acting
as local sponsors for waterways projects.

Geology Make surveys and explorations of minerals, water supply and other natural resources; collect specimens illustrative of the geological
and mineral features of the State and make them available for use and study; regulate and keep records on oil and gas exploration in the State;
prepare maps, reports and studies, and disseminate information on work done.

SUMMARY OF AGENCY REQUEST 1972-73:

TO CONTINUE CURRENT PROGRAMS: The Division of Interior Resources is planning to continue all current programs and activities and is requesting
additional funds in all appropriation categories for price increases, growth in workload, and related costs for ten (10) new positions requested.

The major increases requested can be attributed to the following: (1) Increased support for the Central and Southern Florida Flood Control
District and the Southwest Florida Water Management District for construction, relocation of bridges and highways, and land acquisition; (2)
Anticipated requests for establishment of new water regulatory districts; (3) The assumption of two programs (Topographic Mapping and Shoreline
Surveys) which were funded during 1971-72 from the Operating Trust Fund of the Board of Trustees of the Internal Improvement Trust Fund; and (4)
Assistance to the Sumter County Recreation and Water Conservation and Control Authority for soil erosion and flood control projects.

FOR IMPROVED PROGRAMS: The Division is requesting $15,000 in Other Personal Services for consultant services to produce a comprehensive plan
for development and improvement of the State system of commercial and recreational waterways and associated ports and harbors.

SUMMARY OF PROPOSED PLAN 1973-78: Essentially, the proposed plan for the succeeding five fiscal years is to continue all programs at the same level
of effort contemplated in 1972-73, with major increases being requested for water management, flood control and small watershed projects within the
State. It is anticipated that the program workload will continue at about the same level of increase projected for 1972-73 due to continued expansion
into new areas of development and increased uses of the State's resources.

GOVERNOR'S RECOMMENDATIONS:

TO :'S CURRENT PROGRAMS: The recommendations provide for continuation of all current programs with provisions for merit, price and workload
increases which :.:o. e one (1) new position (Waterways Coordinator) and related costs. The recommendations also provide for shifting the funding of
the Topographic -.: and Survey Programs from the Operating Trust Fund of the Board of Trustees of the Internal Improvement Trust Fund to


FOR -. "''1 7'.:.': No funds are recommended.
