As we have discussed previously, I will be holding a public
hearing in Tallahassee on December 20, 1978 for the purpose
of adopting the Phase I draft of the State Water Use Plan.
At this time we expect a significant turnout, as many
interest groups have indicated to us that they intend to be
represented at this hearing.
We have received some opposition by the Florida Electric
Power Coordinating Group to adoption of the plan, but overall
have received many supportive comments. In general, the
plan is a balanced and rational guide for water management
in Florida and reflects your district's and the department's
efforts over the past several years.
In light of the decision I must make on adoption of the
plan, I am requesting an indication of your support of the
State Water Use Plan either in written form or by statement
at the public hearing.
< I would like to invite your personal attendance at the
hearing, if it is convenient. You may contact me if you
would like to discuss this matter further.
Joseph W. Landers, Jr.
