Dear Don:

Reference is made to your letter of November 29, 1978, regarding a suggested
procedure for processing water use permits for projects which are intersected by
our District boundaries.

The procedure you have outlined represents a practical approach to the pro-
blem, but we suggest a modification to part a., as follows:

a. For any property intersected by the respective District boundaries,
and on which all withdrawal points, or a large majority of the with-
drawal points, are within one District, the technical evaluation will
be performed, and staff report written by, that District. Upon com-
pletion of the approved staff report, said report will be forwarded
to the adjacent District for their concurrence, prior to formal
action by the other District. This procedure is at the option of,
and advance written approval of, the adjacent District.

We suggest this modification to insure that the permitted has the necessary
legal rights to withdraw and use water in both Districts, particularly in those
cases in which withdrawals are located in, or may affect, both Districts.

If this proposed revision is acceptable, please let me know. We agree
that a uniform procedure to handle these types of projects will be beneficial
to all involved parties.
Ve y ruly 'urs,

South Florida Water 'Management District
P.O. Box V
West Palm Beach, FL 33402

Dear Mr. Maloy:

From time to time, the South Florida and Southwest Florida Water Management
Districts receive applications for water use permits from entities whose
property boundaries are intersected by our respective District Boundaries.

Our past experience in processing these applications has proven to be quite
successful and worthy of consideration for adoption in future cases, with
flexibility, of course, for adjustment on a case by case basis.

Please advise this District of your desire concerning the following
procedures:
a. Any property intersected by the respective District boundaries,
I and on which all withdrawal points, or a disproportionately large
fraction of all withdrawal points, are within one District, will
z be considered for approval by that District, with information
"copy of the application and Governing Board action forwarded to
the adjacent District; this at the option and advance written
approval of the adjacent District.

b. Any property intersected by the District boundaries, and having
withdrawal points located in both Districts, will be subject to
the permitting authority of both Districts for the withdrawal
points lying within the respective District boundaries. Each
District will provide to the other, information copies of
evaluation reports, evaluations of received objections, staff
recommendations and Governing Board action. The coordinating
effort will include bringing the applications before the
respective Governing Boards within the same time frame.

We do not wish to formalize these procedures beyond the point of being able
to react in the best public interest on a case by case basis, but do feel
the above guidelines, accepted in a general context, will provide both
Districts with a coordinated position from which to address public inquiry.

Very truly yours,


DONALD R. FEASTER, P.E.
