STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATION

December 17, 1980




TO: Chairman and Members
Environmental Regulation Commission

FROM: Jacob D. Varn i

SUBJECT: State Water Policy


Attached is a letter recently sent to all water management
district board chairmen announcing a schedule for adoption of
State Water Policy pursuant to Chapters 373 and 120, Florida
Statutes. Also attached is a working draft of a proposed
State Water Policy for your review.

As currently drafted, the policy does not amend or in any
ray modify existing water quality standards and hence does
not require your review or approval. However, I would very
much like to solicit your input on this important issue and
will keep you fully informed of the status of State Water
Policy over the next several months.

The purpose of State Water Policy is to provide general
guidance to water management districts, other water management
agencies, regulated interests, and the public as to the over-
all direction of water management in Florida. It is en-
visioned that State Water Policy will become Part I of the
State Water Use Plan pursuant to Section 373.036, Florida
Statutes, with more detailed, problem-specific planning and
policy development to follow. In order for such policy to
be binding, it is necessary to undergo adoption proceedings
pursuant to Chapter 120, Florida Statutes. Adoption of
State Water Policy by the Department was a recommendation of
the Governor's Resource Management Task Force.
