Mr. Olson brought up the next item concerning water. He
introduced Mr. Jake Varn to discuss this subject.

Mr. Varn presented a plan to ease the water shortage in West
Pasco County. His long term plan was for the County to negotiate"
"with Mr. Bexley to purchase water rights for a 5 MGD withdrawal
from his 15,000 acres. The County could then negotiate use of
Pinellas County's 66 inch pipeline to carry the water to U.S. 19
and there construct a permanent 60 inch pipeline to carry the
water on to Holiday. He said Pinellas County indicated a willing-
ness to cooperate and that the plan would not require Pasco County
to. purchase water from Pinellas County as they would merely be
using Pinellas County's pipeline to carry their own water.

Mr. Varn spoke about a short term plan which would consist of
tapping into the County's 36 inch pipeline with a temporary 12 inch
line along U.S. 19 for one mile. There a permanent facility would
be built to carry the water on to Holiday.

There was continued discussion concerning these plans.

MR. LAW MOVED TO AUTHORIZE TO FINALIZE THE AGREEMENT WITH'
MR. BEXLEY, AND TO ENTER INTO AN AGREEMENT WITH PINELLAS COUNTY
TO UTILIZE THE CAPACITY OF THE 66" PIPELINE.
