SOUTHWEST FLORIDA WATER MANAGEMENT DISTRICT

STIPULATIONS GOVERNING OPERATION OF
COSME-ODESSA WELL FIELD OPERATED
BY CITY OF ST. PETERSBURG


1. That the CITY, its agents and employees, shall not withdraw or cause

to be withdrawn, from the wells in the aforesaid Cosme-Odessa Well

Field, Hillsborough County, Florida, any amount of water which will

cause the weekly average elevation of the potentiometric surface of

the Floridan Aquifer as determined cumulatively on a yearly basis,

to be less than:

(a) Twenty (20) feet above mean sea level as measured at
Grace 3 Observation Well (280607N823530W).

(b) Twenty-Five (25) feet above mean sea level as measured at
the James II Observation Well (280703N0823417).

(c) Twenty-Four (24) feet above mean sea level as measured at
the Calm 33A Observation Well (280836N0823438).

2. In connection with the operation of the Cosme-Odessa and Section 21

Well Fields:

(a) At no time shall the weekly average elevations of the potentiometric
surface of the Floridan Aquifer be more than 3 feet below the

elevations set forth in Paragraph 1 above.

(b) Weekly average elevations shall be calculated by adding together
the high reading for each day and the low reading for each day,

then dividing the sum thereof by 14; each weekly period shall

commence at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday of each week.

(c) The weekly average elevations shall be determined cumulatively
from October 1,1975 through September 30, 1976. A new production

year shall start on October 1, 1975 and each October 1 thereafter.
Cumulative weekly average elevations shall not carry over from one

production year to another, and production causing regulatory levels
to drop below the cumulative weekly average elevations shall only be

permitted during the first six weeks of each production year.

(d) The total maximum withdrawals from the combined Cosme-Odessa Well
Field and the well field operated by the CITY referred to as

Section 21 Well Field shall not exceed 168 million gallons per











4. The witnesses, Carl Linn, M. L. Brashears, William A. Duynslager, J.

Clint Brown, Terry D. Vandell, and C. G. Harvey,were duly sworn and

presented testimony on the application and indicated the considerations

the Governing Board should understand in its deliberation on the matter.

Messrs. Linn, Brashears and Duynslager recommended removing the maximum

gallonage permitted to be pumped from the well field under existing

District Regulatory Order 74-11R and lowering the regulatory levels

presently governing the well field pursuant to Order 74-11R. Ms. Vandell

recommended issuance of a Consumptive Use Permit which will include the

provisions set forth in Regulatory Order 74-11R which had been introduced

as part of the exhibits in this hearing and subject to certain additional

conditions. Messrs. Brown and Harvey recommended that the permit not be

issued until a further hearing is held to consider all of the St. Petersburg

applications for the existing well fields.

CONCLUSIONS OF LAW

The parties have properly proceeded under Chapter 373, Florida Statutes,

and the rules promulgated pursuant thereto. The testimony heard and documentary

evidence received permit the Governing Board of the Southwest Florida Water

Management District to grant the application for a Consumptive Use Permit

with certain restrictions to protect the natural resources of the area.

ORDER

Grant Application No. 7500004 for a Consumptive Use Permit for withdrawal

of water subject to regulatory level and the attached conditions which are

attached as Exhibit "A".
