MEMO TO FILE: SWFWMD Water Shortage
I met with Don Feaster, Rod Cherry and Bill Smith. We were
later joined by Pic Talley.
We reviewed the proposed draw down levels and Bill Smith set
pumping level minimums for each well within the PCWS well
field. (See attached list) Bill is also going to work out
a proposed modification of the minimum levels for the six
existing monitor wells.
We reviewed the stipulation and agreed to make several modifications
requested by Pic Talley.
Talley is going to check with his people about pumping levels
and be back in touch on Monday.

IMO TO PILE : SWFWMD Water Shortage
On August 3, 1973 Derrill MEteer and I met with Merritt
Stierheim and Pie Talley. We were later joined by .rey
We discussed our proposed stipulation to which they generally
agreed. However, they did not agree to the pumping rates
beyond October 1. 1973, and it was generally understood if
we could agree to draw down levels of production wells.
within the well field, we would stipulate to these figures
as a means for governing the withd wal from the well after
October 1, 1973 until such time as the monitor wells can be
Sclpleted.-the piping tests run, and maUitor levels set.
We also stated that we were going to insist that there be
a provision in the stipulation limiting withdrawals 28 mgd
average one year from now, if nothing further has been done
to alleviate the situation.
Railroad right-of-way pipeline it was generally agreed
that we would enter into an interagency agreement allocating
the initial transmission capacity of the 84 inch line as
Pinellas County 5/13ths
St. Petersburg 3/13ths
SWFWMD for future allocation 5/13ths
It was generally agreed that the initial cost of acquisition
of the right-of-way and construction of the pipeline would be
advanced in the following shares:
Pinellas County 8/13ths
St. Petersburg 5/13ths
It was further agreed that at such time as any of the capacity
is allocated by SWFWMD to other users, that they would be required
to contribute a prorate share of the cost of the right-of-way and
Cypress Creek Well Field it is generally understood and
agreed that the Cypress Creek urea well field will not produce
all of the water that the pipeline will be capable of trans-
mitting. Preliminary estimates for the area range from 35
to 50 agd.
Allocation It was generally agreed that the allocation of
water produced by the Cyprss Creek area well filed wold be
in the teen proportions as the tranissioan apeoity of the
pipeline even though the use of the water might not involve
use of the pipeline. For instance, if Pasco County needs
water to the east of the M ll field, they oeald be authoised
to take up to 5/13ithe (ot si portim of that as is agreed
by Hillaborough and r?) for use, even taongh they might not
be utili g the trae siaim capacity at the pipeline.
Law Sfits We gedherlly agreed that we wmld seek a one

of the above provisions.
