BROOKSVILLE (December 11, 1975) -- There's good news for area well

owners and users of large quantities of water. The Governing Board of the

Southwest Florida Water Management District has given tentative approval to

a new and greatly simplified Consumptive Use Permit application form.

Governing Board Chairman Derrill McAteer told the District staff to

make any required changes as soon as possible so that the Governing Board

can give final approval to the new form at it's next meeting January 14.

The Consumptive Use Permits are required of anyone who withdraws more

than one million gallons of water per day (gpd); or whose withdrawals average

more than 100,000 gpd on an annual basis; or whose facilities have a capacity

of more than one million gpd; or whose well has an inside diameter of six

inches or more. The new form will relieve the applicant of much of the work

associated with the present application. Bob Evans, chief of the District

permits section, says the new form has been sent to interested groups for

comment but says he has received only a few written replies so far. He at-

tributes the limited response to the holiday season, and says he hopes that

many others will respond soon.

The new permit will come in two versions. Those whose withdrawal

points (wells, lakes, rivers, etc.) are located entirely within one section

of land will use one version while those whose withdrawal points are located

in more than one section will use the other.
