Attachment 2


The staff has always recognized the hydrological advantages of the City of St. Peters-
burg utilizing the Pasco County well field. In making recommendations to the Board
of Governors we have recommended that the order not become effective until the City
of St. Petersburg could make use of the Pasco well field. Each proposal for an effective
date of the order was designed to encourage the completion of the Pasco well field
facilities so that the field would become operational and relief accrue to Cosme and
Section 21.

Shown below are several proposals for the effective date provision along with comments.

1. The order shall become effective when the Pasco well field becomes
operational, as determined by SWFWMD(R), or on August 1, 1972, which-
ever occurs first.
Comment: This was the provision submitted on December 8, 1971. The City
of St. Petersburg vigorously opposed the August 1, 1972 date because it would
encourage Hillsborough County to continue opposing the pipeline crossing at
J r the Lutz-Lake Fern Road. If Hillsborough County was successful in preventing
"" -i, the crossing, the order would become effective and restrict withdrawals from
the Hillsborough County well fields and leave the City without enough source
of supply. It was the staff's intent that the August 1, 1972, date was necessary
to encourage the City of St. Petersburg to expedite steps to make the Pasco
well field operational.

2. The order shall become effective nine months after the City obtains a legal
access for the pipeline across the Lutz-Lake Fern Road or; when the City delivers
ten million gallons per day (10 m.g.d.) from the Pasco well field to the water
treatment plant or; March 1, 1973, whichever occurs first.
Comment: This was the provision submitted on January 12, 1972. The City
of St. Petersburg voiced opposition to the order becoming effective nine months
after the City obtains a legal access across the Lutz-Lake Fern Road. The
Keystone Park Civic Association opposed the provision whereby the order would
become effective when the City delivered ten million gallons per day from th.
Pasco well field to the water treatment plant. The City and the Keystone
group agreed in general that each would prefer an effective date based on when
the Pasco well field was operational.

3. The order shall become effective when the Pasco well field becomes operational,
as determined by SWFWMD(R).
Comment: This is a new recommendation that we feel is the best answer. This
proposal reflects exactly when we would want the order to become effective.
This would encourage Hillsborough County to remove the obstacles it has placed
before the City. This would prevent Hillsborough County and other parties from
drawing out the pending lawsuits so that the order would become effective on
a given date, such as the March 1, 1973, -- thereby successfully restricting
pumping in the Hillsborough County well fields and leaving the City without
adequate source to meet its needs. If Hilisborough County wants to see the
order become effective, then it would cooperate with the City to make the Pasco
well field operational. Some may fear that this provision would encourage the
City to slow down its efforts to make the Pasco well field operational, but we
feel that we can watch the City's work to determine if it is making sincere
efforts. Of course, if the Board feels that the City is not making a good effort,
another hearing can be held setting a definite effective date. Regardless,
with this plan all the options are with you and not with others.
