INITIALLY THERE WAS SOME FEELING THAT THIS MIGHT BE AN EXTENSION
OF THE SOUTHWEST FLORIDA !ATER MANAGEMENT DISTRICT FUNCTION. BUT
THE SOUTHWEST FLORIDA WATER MANAGEMENT DISTRICT HAD A REGULATORY
FUNCTION AND WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ISSUANCE OF PERMITS FOR THE
WITHDRAWAL OF WATER IN THE EYES OF MANY IT WAS FELT THAT
SUPPLYING WATER; TOO, WOULD CREATE AN INTERNAL CONFLICT OF
INTEREST. IT WOULD BE UNDESIRABLE TO HAVE THE SAME AGENCY WHICH
WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR GOVERNING WATER WITHDRAWAL TO BE RESPONSIBLE
FOR SUPPLYING WATER. THERE WAS SUPPORT FOR A NEW AUTHORITY,
SOMETHING ALONG THE LINES OF THE TAMPA .BAY AREA RAPID TRANSIT
AUTHORITY, THE AVIATION AUTHORITY, AND THE PORT AUTHORITY, A SINGLE
PURPOSE ENTITY RESPONSIBLE FOR WATER SUPPLY, LEGISLATION WAS
INITIATED IN THE SUMMER-OF 1974 AND ENACTED, THE LEGISLATION...
MADE IT POSSIBLE TO CREATE REGIONAL WATER SUPPLY ORGANIZATIONS
WITH THE SINGLE PURPOSE OF SUPPLYING WHOLESALE WATER TO MUNICIPALITIES
AND COUNTIES,_ I BELIEVE I.T'-S FAIR:--TO -SAY THAT THE--MAIN THRUST FOR
THE LEGISLATION CAME FROM THIS.TAMPA;BAY REGION.-- THE FIRST.-
AUTHORITY TO SO ORGANIZE UNDER THIS STATUTE WAS THE EEST COAST
REGIONAL WATER SUPPLY AUTHRITIY. THE COUNTIES OF PINELLAS, PASCO,
HILLSBOROUGH, TOGETHER WITH ST. PETERSBURG AND TAMPA ORGANIZED AND
WITH A FANTASTIC SHOW OF COOPERATION AND COMMON NEED DEVELOPED AN
AGREEMENT WHICH RESULTED IN THE CREATION OF THIS AUTHORITY.
COMMISSIONER CHARLES RAINEY OF PINELLAS COUNTY WAS ELECTED AS THE
FIRST CHAIRMAN; BOB CURRY, COMMISSIONER OF HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, THE
VICE CHAIRMAN; CURTIS LAW, COMMISSIONER OF PASCO COUNTY, THE
TREASURER. ADDITIONAL MEMBERS WERE NAMED FROM ST. PETERSBURG

members of the j r-isdictions making up the AUTHORITY, other govern-

mental agencies, the public and the press. The CONSULTANT will take

directions from the AUTHORITY only.

The CONSULTANT will put priority on portions of the project or

temporarily suspend work on portions of the project as the AUTHORITY

may from time to time direct. The CONSULTANT ,will make maximum use

in the project of all pertinent data developed in earlier studies or

in concurrent studies.

The project shall be divided into two (2) phases;

Phase I Provide a definite plan for meeting the 1980 to 1985
"needs that can in as much as practicable. proceed
immediately to plans and Specifications. This would
be accomplished at the earliest possible date through
early read outs from the overall study. The CONSULTANT
shall evaluate the water needs, possible water sources,
possible system interconnects, economics, environmental
protection and engineering feasibility of various solu-
tions and present specific proposals for meeting the
1980 1985 water needs of the 3-County region. The
study results may (and probably will) include proposed
well field locations complete with associated pumping
stations and transmission main alignments. Prospective
well field sites that due to their location, surface
features, surrounding development, existing water wells
and drilling logs, etc., indicate a high potential as a
future source of water, shall be identified and ranked
in order of merit. One pumping test shall be conducted
at the optimum site to evaluate water quantity, quality,
subsurface features and aquifer characteristics. The
feasibility of interconnecting Authority member water
supply systems as an alternative to additional well field
development shall be evaluated in detail: The study shall
require expertise in groundwater hydrology, but it will
also require insights in the areas of engineering, finance
and environmental management. This plan whether it is
ground water, surface water or a combination, should be
developed as early as is practicable and Will include
interim reports and limited supplemental investigations,
as necessary.

IN THIS REGION? LET 'E MAKE THIS VERY CLEAR THE LEGISLATION
DOES NOT SEE THE WATER AUTHORITY IN THE RETAIL WATER BUSINESS,
IT ENVISIONS THE CONTINUATION OF ALL OF THE PUBLIC SYSTEMS THAT
WE HAVE TODAY AND IT CONTEMPLATES THE SALE OF WATER BY THE
AUTHORITY TO THESE JURISDICTIONS ON A WHOLESALE BASIS AND AT
RATES WHICH ARE EQUITABLE. THERE IS NO CONFLICT WITH THE EXISTING
JURISDICTIONS. I WOULD EXPECT THAT AT SOME POINT IN TIME THIS
AUTHORITY WILL BE THE PRINCIPAL WHOLESALE SUPPLIER OF WATER TO
THESE JURISDICTIONS. THAT REALLY WAS THE PURPOSE FOR WHICH THIS
AUTHORITY WAS CREATED TO STOP THE CLAIM STAKING, THE COMPETITION
FOR WATER RESOURCES;. WE WILL WORK- WITH THE-OTHER JURISDICTIONS
AND WITH SWFWMD-AND TBRPC IN OUR PLANNING-AND/ ,OF COURSE, OUR
WITHDRAWALS WILL BE SUBJECT TO SWFWMD REGULATION.


FINANCIAL SUPPORT
Now HOW ARE WE FINANCED?- -THE LEGISLATION AND THE AGREEMENT
CONTEMPLATE-THIS WILL BE A SELF SUSTAINING EFFORT-- WE WILL SELL
WATER AT RATES WHICH WILL ENABLE US TO DEVELOP. -TO STORE, TO PRODUGE-
AND TO DISTRIBUTE THE WATER AT COST. AS ANY NEW ORGANIZATION WE
WILL BE FACED WITH THE PROBLEM OF HOW WE GET OFF THE GROUND, HOW
WE GET ORGANIZED AND FUNCTIONING WITHOUT AN INITIAL SOURCE OF
FUNDS. THE PEOPLE WHO CREATED THE AUTHORITY ENVISIONED THIS
PROBLEM AND PROVIDED FOR. INTERIM FUNDING BY _THE THREE COUNTIES IN
PROPORTION TO THEIR TAX BASES-- THIS AMOUNTS TO APPROXIMATELY
$400,000 DOLLARS PER YEAR, A SINGLE COUNTY WOULD FUND AT A
MAXIMUM RATE OF $200,000 A YEAR FOR A PERIOD NOT TO EXCEED 5 YEARS.
THAT OBVIOUSLY WON'T BE SUFFICIENT TO UNDERTAKE ANY REAL MAJOR
PROJECTS, IT WILL, HOWEVER, BE SUFFICIENT TO SUPPORT AN INITIAL
STAFF, TO RENT AN OFFICE, TO BUY THE NECESSARY SUPPLIES AND .

SUPPLIES, HEY ARE FURTHER AWAY WE HAVE TO PROCESS THEM MORE,
AND WE HAVE TO DO MORE TO PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT FOR THE
GENERATIONS THAT WILL FOLLOW US. ENERGY COSTS MORE FOR A
VARIETY OF REASONS WATER WILL BECOME MORE EXPENSIVE. THE SAFE
!'WATER DRINKING ACT WILL IMPOSE NEW RELATIVELY EXPENSIVE REQUIRE-
MENTS WHICH WILL RESULT IN A HIGHER QUALITY AND HIGHER PRICES,
YOU CAN LOOK FORWARD TO HIGHER COSTS OF WATER AND YOU CAN LOOK-
FORWARD TO THAT REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THIS AUTHORITY HAD COME INTO
BEING, BUT YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO LOOK FORWARD, 5 TO 10 YEARS
HENCE, TO ENOUGH QUALITY WATER TO MEET YOUR NEEDS., THERE IS
PLENTY OF WATER FOR ALL OUR NEEDS IF WE PLAN AND ACT INTENLIGENTLY,
WATER WILL CONTINUE TO BE THE BEST BARGAIN IN OUR BUDGETS,


FINALLY, WHAT DOES THE AUTHORITY MEAN TO YOU IN A PROFESSIONAL
CAPACITY? SOME OF YOU WILL NO DOUBT BE WORKING FOR CONSULTANTS
WHO WILL BE PROVIDING SERVICES-F.OR-US-,-- OTHERS MAY-BE-WITH THE-
PLANNING ORGANIZATIONS SUCH AS TBRPC OR SWFfMD OR THE EXISTING
MUNICIPALITIES AND COUNTIES,. OTHERS MAY REMAIN WITH THE UNIVERSITY -
AND I WOULD HOPE THAT WE MAY BE ABLE TO AVAIL OURSELVES OF YOUR
EXPERTISE, ESPECIALLY IN THE MATTER OF APPLICABLE COMPUTER
PROGRAMS, SOME MAY BE WITH FEDERAL OR STATE WATER AGENCIES; STILL
OTHERS MAY BECOME MEMBERS OF OUR OWN AUTHORITY STAFF. BUT WE
EXPECT TO SEE MANY OF YOU IN ONE ROLE OR ANOTHER, I AM GRATEFUL
TODAY FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO GET ACQUAINTED AND I HOPE SET THE
STAGE FOR A USEFUL CONTINUING RELATIONSHIP, I'M OPTIMISTIC THAT
WE ARE WELL ON THE WAY TO THE CREATION OF A VIABLE REGIONAL
ORGANIZATION, THAT MAY SET A PATTERN FOR SUCH COMMON SERVICES

WATER SUPPLY AUTHORITY
PLACE: THE UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH FLORIDA (WATER RESOURCES GRADUATE
. L PROGRA.I)
DATE: NOVEE;R 7, 1975, 3 P.M,


IJNTRQ0_DU&IOII
PERMIT ME TO GIVE YOU SOME GENERAL BACKGROUND ON THE WEST COAST
REGIONAL WATER SUPPLY AUTHORITY. TODAY, I WILL TALK BRIEFLY
ABOUT THE FORMATION OF THE AUTHORITY, ITS PURPOSE, ORGANIZATION,
STAFFING AND PROGRAMS, RELATIONSHIP TO OTHER AGENCIESj ITS
FINANCING. AND WHAT THE AUTHORITY MEANS TO YOU. MY ASSOCIATION
WITH THE AUTHORITY COMMENCED IN MAY OF THIS YEAR, THERE IS A
TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF BACKGROUND PRECEDING THAT DATE THAT MADE
POSSIBLE ITS FORMATION, PERHAPS MANY OF YOU KNOW THAT THE WATER
PROBLEMS OF THIS REGION DATE BACK AS FAR AS THE LATE 1920'S WHEN
THE WATER SYSTEMS OF BOTH TAMPA AND ST, PETERSBURG EXPERIENCED
SALT WATER INTRUSION, ACCORDING TO JERRY PARKER, UNTIL RECENTLY
CHIEF HYDROLOGIST AND SCIENTIST OF SWFWMD, IT WOULD TAKE AT LEAST
3 SEMESTERS OF UNIVERSITY LEVEL STUDY TO EVEN REMOTELY UNDERSTAND
OUR FLORIDA WATER PROBLEMS. I'M PLEASED TO SEE THERE ARE THOSE
WHO ARE DEVELOPING THAT UNDERSTANDING, IT IS DIFFICULT TO CONCEIVE
OF A REAL PROBLEM IN A STATE THAT HAS MUCH MORE FRESH WATER STORED
UNDERGROUND THAN IS IN ALL THE GREAT LAKES COMBINED, WHEN THE
SALT WATER INTRUSION OCCURRED IN THE 20's, TAMPA EXPANDED ITS
SURFACE WATER SYSTEM, AND ST. PETERSBURG WENT NORTH AND DRILLED-
THE FIRST WELLS IN THE COSME-ODESSA AREA. SUBSEQUENTLY THERE HAS
BEEN A CONSIDERABLE DEVELOPMENT OF THE HILLSBOROUGH RIVER WATER
WHICH SUPPLIES THE CITY OF TAMPA AND NEW WELLS HAVE BEEN DRILLED IN
NORTHERN PINELLAS COUNTY, AND HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY AND SOUTHERN PASCO

THERE HAS BEEN A GREAT DEAL OF CONTROVERSY AS TO WHOSE WATER
THIS IS, AND AS TO THE IMPACT OF THE WITHDRAWAL OF WATER FOR.
MUNICIPAL USE THE IMPACT IN TERMS OF THE AQUIFER, THE IMPACT
IN TERMS OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SALT WATER INTRUSION. AND THE
IMPACT ON THE WATER TABLE AND SURFACE WATER LEVELS,


PURPOSE
ANYWAY,- THESE -WELLS IN. HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, PINELLAS COUNTY AND
SOUTHERN PASCO COUNTY HAVE CREATED A CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF
CONTROVERSY, AND THAT MAY BE THE-UNDERSTATEMENT OF THE YEAR, AND
THERE CAME.TO BE WITHIN THIS AREA, AND-I DON'T REALLY KNOW WHO
THE FIRST PERSON WHO MIGHT HAVE THOUGHT OF ITj BUT THERE WERE A
LOT OF PEOPLE WHO -INFLUENCED THE SITUATION THERE CAME--TO BE A
RECOGNITION AND A SENSE THAT WE HAVE-TO HAVE A BETTER WAY/. THAT
THERE MUST BE A WAY OF LOOKING AT-OUR WATER PROBLEMS AND OUR
WATER SOURCES-ON-A-REGIONAL-BASIS SUCH..THAT WE DIDN'T FIND-OURSELVES
COMPETING WITH ONE ANOTHER FOR THESE SOURCES, WE HAD BEEN STAKING
CLAIMS SO THAT WE-COULD BEAT THE OTHER FELLOW TO A SOURCE
OF WATER THAT LOOKED LIKE IT MIGHT HAVE POTENTIAL; THIS WAS NOT
ONLY DIVISIVE, BUT IT WAS COSTLY. THAT CREATED THE THRUST FOR
THE DEVELOPMENT OF A REGIONAL WATER AUTHORITY, ONE WHICH WOULD
CONCERN ITSELF WITH WATER SUPPLY AND WATER SUPPLY NEEDS.OF ALL THE
JURISDICTIONS OF THIS REGION.


ORGAJAlZXTION
ONCE THE NEED FOR A REGIONAL APPROACH WAS RECOGNIZED, THE NEXT
QUESTIONS WERE WHO SHOULD THIS AUTHORITY BE, WHAT SHOULD IT BE?

CONSULTANT SELECTION, FEASIBILITY STUDIES


January 7, 1976


The consultant selection process began in June 1975 with a public
advertisement for general interest in the activities of the West Coast
Regional Water Supply Authority. In August, the '76 Budget was adopted,
including four programmed studies. In October, the Board authorized and
directed the solicitation of interest in a consultant study which was
designed to respond to three of the four budget projects. The fourth
study was obviated by a decision to assume ownership of the Cypress
Creek Wellfield facilities, upon the consummation of transfer agreements
with the current owners.

In excess of forty engineering firms have indicated general interest
in working for the Authority. Over 30 indicated a direct interest in
the budgeted study. The first phase of the study was to provide an
analysis of regional water needs and sources which could be developed
to meet 1980-1985 needs. The second phase was to look at regional system
interconnections and the third phase would examine sources for the period
beyond 1985. The three studies were joined to make use of data common
to all. The cost savings effected by joining the studies are considerable
Also, it was deemed highly important that the long range and short range
solutions be compatible. All studies, of course, are to be done in the
context of minimizing adverse environmental impact and will consider all
alternatives to supply, including re-use and desalination, ground and
surface water.

The selection process has now proceeded, through a careful screening
process, to the point where only three firms are still under active
consideration. They are:

Ross, Saarinen, Bolton & Wilder, Inc./
Camp Dresser & McKee

J. B. Converse

Briley, Wild & Associates

All of the above firms propose to use the nationally recognized firm
of Geraghty & Miller as their hydrology consultant. Any one could do
a creditable job. It is expected that the Board of Directors will
place these three in order of merit for the staff to commence negotiating
a contract in January. The goal is to complete the first phase of the
study this fiscal year.





I :








E. All audits mentioned in the Agreement are to be performed by a CPA,
to be provided by the CONSULTANT to the AUTHORITY when requested by the
AUTHORITY and in addition eay be checked by the AUTHORITY or its auditor
at the discretion of the AUTHORITY. Such audit cost shall be reasonable
and may be included in Item II for reimbursement. If an audit is not
requested by the AUTHORITY, the cost figures will be prepared by the
CONSULTANT using his normal accounting procedures and the cost will be
included in Schedule "C" General Overhead Costs.
F. If any provision of this Agreement is held invalid, the remainder
of this Agreement shall not be affected thereby if such remainder would
then continue to conform to the terms and requirements.of applicable law.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have caused these

presents to be executed by their duly qualified representatives the day

and year first above mentioned.
