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

the weekly average elevation of the potentiometric surface of the Floridan

aquifer to'be less than:
a. Twenty-one (21) feet above mean sea level, as measured at

the "Water Plant E-100" observation well (280548N0823557).

b. Twenty-four (24) feet above mean sea level, as measured at

the "James 11" observation well (280703N0823417).

c.- Twenty-three (23) feet above mean sea level, as measured

at the "Calm 33A" observation well (280836N0823438).

2. That the City, its agents and employees, shall not withdraw, or

cause to be withdrawn, from the wells in'the aforesaid Section 21 Well Field,

Hillsborough County, Florida, any amount of water which will cause the weekly

average elevation of the potentiometric surface of the Floridan aquifer to be

less than:
a. Thirty-two (32) feet above mean sea level, as measured at

the "Hillsborough 13" observation well (280704N0823030).

b. Thirty-three (33) feet above mean sea level, as measured

3. Said weekly average referred to in paragraphs 1 and 2 above will

be calculated by using two readings, the high and low for each day of the

calendar week; the average of these daily figures for the calendar week will

represent the weekly average elevation of the potentiometric surface.
4. That said elevations, as provided for in paragraphs 1 and 2 above

for specific potentiometric levels are subject to review, and change if nec-

essary, by the Board each six months hereafter, or if the Board deems it

necessary, at more frequent intervals.

5. That the City shall, within four months of the date of this Order,

construct a deep observation well in the approximate center of the aforesaid

mental to the water resources of the State of Florida, without causing irrep-

arable damage to adjacent landowners, and without resulting in contamination

; y of the water source, and the City having been present and represented by its
f counsel at said hearing, and the testimony at said hearing having been steno-

graphically recorded, and the Board having reviewed and carefully considered

"| the evidence presented to the Board at said hearing, the Board finds that a

.| preponderance of the evidence offered at said hearing shows:

Cosme-Odessa Well Field and Section 21 Well Field are detrimental to th,, other

water users and the wYter resources of the State of Florida.

I B. That the withdrawals of water by the City from the aforesaid Pasco
SWell Field must also be regulated in order to obtain the most beneficial use
