PROPOSED STIPULATION BETWEEN SWFWMD, PINELLAS COUNTY, AND
CITY OF ST. PETERSBURG
RE: SCL Pipe Line Easement and Cypress Creek Well Field
1. It is the intent of all parties that ultimately the transmission
line and the Cypress Creek Well Field will be controlled and
operated by a regional water production authority.
2. In the interim, 5/13 of the transmission capacity of the pipeline
will be allotted to Pinellas County; 3/13 to St. Petersburg; and
5/13 to SWFWMD. The portion allotted to SWFWMD is to be held in
trust for the purpose of later transferring to the production
authority, or, if the authority is not established, to apportion
5/13 of the transmission capacity between Pasco County, Hillsborough
County, New Port Richey, and other local entities. SWFWMD will have
the authority to grant temporary use of this capacity to Pinellas
County and St. Petersburg, until needed by the other water distributors.
Cost of construction to be provided initially by Pinellas County and
3. All parties agree to acquire, construct and develop a Cypress Creek
Well Field and flood detention area jointly. This will be managed
so as to provide maximum water production and flood control.
The cost for land acquisition, construction of levees and control
structures, and construction of well sites and access roads will
be shared jointly. SWFWMD will pay 50 percent (50%), Pinellas
County 31 percent (31%), and St. Petersburg 19 percent (19%).
The water production facilities will be transferred to the authority
when created. Pinellas County and St. Petersburg will be given credit
for the amounts contributed as an offset against service charges to
be made for water supplied by the authority.
