Mr. Twachtmann then presented to each member of the Board a special map
showing the hydrologic data network in the vicinity of the new St. Petersburg
well field. The map depicts the lakes, streams and wells, including recording
devices, staff gages, streamflow recorder and observation wells surrounding
the field. He explained that this information will enable the District to know
the changes the new field might produce. It is hoped that arrangements can be
made whereby the use of this field by the City of St. Petersburg will not cause
serious problems to the surrounding lakes and streams in the area. The
Director said it is the District's plan to be so well informed on the hydrologic
conditions in the area that the facts will be difficult to dispute.

Chairman McAteer requested that a copy of this U. S. Geological Survey map
be furnished to the City of St. Petersburg and that further contacts be made
with City officials to keep informed and to get their cooperation.

Mr. Bexley questioned whether any more observation wells are planned for the
area northwest of the well field. Mr. Parker explained that the U. S. Geological
Survey has been looking for an existing well in that area for monitoring pur-
poses, however, it may be necessary to put down a special well there if one
does not already exist.

Chairman McAteer asked whether Hillsborough County has opened its new well
field on U. S. 41 south of Riverview. Mr. Parker stated that eight wells have
been standing by ready for production for some time but he was not certain
whether or not they had started pumping. In response to a question by Mr.
Anderson he stated that a monitoring system for these wells has also been set
up by the U. S. Geological Survey. Chairman McAteer asked Mr. Parker to
check on the status of this well field and report back to the Board at its next

Mr. Twachtmann stated, as a reannouncement of the motion made at the last
meeting, that a public hearing will be held at the March llth meeting to con-
sider changes to the Rules and Regulations, Chapter 357R-1, Florida Admin-
istrative Code.

There being no further business to come before the Board at this time the
meeting adjourned at 10:00 A. M.

Mr. Parker then reported to the Board on the present status of driller regis-

with 40 applications still incomplete. A total of 246 permits were processed
during the month of January. This is an average of approximately 12 permits
per day.

Mr. Parker reported that Hydrology Division field personnel have been spot

Mr. Twachtmann stated he was quite surprised to lean that of the 346 permits
processed to date Hillsborough County leads the District about 3 to 1 over any
of the other counties. He said he did not expect the distribution to be that dis-
proportionate or that Hiillsborough would be the most| active county.
