RE: SWFWMD Ridge Area Transfer
Existing South Florida Permits
Section 373.224, F.S., provides that any permits issued by a
water management district prior to December 31, 1976, shall
remain in full force and effect in accordance with these terms
until otherwise modified or revoked as authorized by Chapter
373.236 provides that permits be granted for periods not to
exceed twenty (20) years but a permit duration of up to fifty
(50) years may be issued in case of a municipality or other
governmental body or of a public works or public service
corporation where such periods are required to provide for
the retirement of bonds for the construction of water works
and waste disposal facilities.
C. & S.F.F.C.D. permit no. 53-00002 was issued May 9, 1975
to Bon Aire Water and Sewer District, Winter Haven, with an
expiration date of May 8, 2010. Special conditions limit the
maximum daily withdrawal, etc. It would appear that this permit
would remain in full force and effect pursuant to Section
373.224 until modified and revoked.
C. & S.F. permit no. 28-00014/W was issued December 19, 1975 to
L. D. Smith, Jr., Lake Placid with an expiration date of
January 15. 1978. This permit describes the monthly withdrawal
maximum and certain other terms and conditions. This permit
is to use surface water for agricultural irrigation from Lake
Francis serving 10 acres of citrus nursery using volume guns. The
file has a draft of a new permit to be issued effective January
15, 1978 with an expiration date of July 15, 1988. However,
there is no correspondence to indicate whether or not this
permit was issued or not.
South Florida issued permit no. 28-00086/W on December 16, 1976
to Westby Corporation with an expiration date of January 15, 1978.
This permit is to irrigate 3050 acres through seepage irrigation
for texture. The file indicates that it may have been reissued
on January 15, 1978 with an expiration date of July 15, 1988.
My copy is too poor to read the terms and conditions of the
MEMO TO FILE

C. & S.F. permit issued permit no. 28-00098/W on March 10, 1977 to
The Dasher Groves, Inc. with an expiration date of January 15,
1978. On my copy this permit indicates that the 1978 has been
struck through and the 1988 has been inserted. This may have been
for the purpose of granting a renewal permit but it was not
indicated as to whether this was issued. Terms and conditions
providing maximum monthly withdrawals shall not exceed the maximum
monthly withdrawal identified in the staff report. This is for
irrigation of a 110 acre grove from wells.
