Governor Robert Graham
The Capitol
Tallahassee, Florida 32304

Dear Governor:

The South Florida Water Management Board passed a favorable
resolution forwarding the draft "The State Water Policy"
to the Department of Environmental Regulation.

I have written Secretary Tschinkel to advise her that I
believe the draft is toothless, without merit and an insult
to the process.

The draft has been handled by too many hands and a quick
reading of it will prove to you that at a minimum a strong
preamble should state the purpose of the policy.

With best wishes.

Ms. Victoria Tschinkel
Secretary MAR (
Department of Environmental Regulation
Twin Towers Office Building Office

Tallahassee, Florida 32301

Dear Vicki:

After a furious debate the South Florida Water Management
Board forwarded the draft "Water Policy" to your office with
a favorable recommendation.

I objected. I think it reads like pablum!

Too many hands have massaged that paper'. Reject it firmly,
politely, but reject it.

: At a minimum, it should start with a preamble: "It is the
'- policy of the State of Florida to protect, enhance and
wisely manage its fresh water resource."

I believe it is too long, verbose and full of the usual

Don't accept it. Go quietly until confronted, then say a
loud "NO".
Best wishes.

Nathanie- P. Reed
