District, Pasco County and New Port Richey the possibility of Authority
.assumption of operational control of this wellfield, as provided for
in the agreement between the District and the City of New Port Richey.
I have asked the Authority staff to commence looking into the details of
how and under what conditions a transfer of functions could take place.
I am well aware of the constraints imposed by Mr. J. B. Starkey upon
the transfer of his properties to the SWFWMD. There do not appear to be
constraints that are now or need be incompatible with wellfield develop-
ment.

Would you please give this matter your attention and instruct your staff
to meet with Doc Hesse and Lou de la Parte to discuss conditions of
"transfer.

Dear Derrill:

As you are aware, we are on the verge of completing arrangements for the
West Coast Regional Water Supply Authority to assume ownership of the
Cypress Creek Wellfield and pumping station and the 84" pipeline built
by St. Petersburg and Pinellas County. The first agreement, relating to
the purchase of the wellfield and pumping station, already has the general
concurrence of all governmental bodies involved, Pasco, St. Petersburg,
Pinellas and the Supply Authority. The water purchase agreements and the
arrangements for utilization of the pipeline are matters of active staff
negotiation and discussion.

It is the sense of the Authority that once we have consummated the Cypress
Creek Agreements, which I believe should occur in the very near future, we
should look toward the next logical operational undertaking of the Authority.
High among our priorities is to address the problems of West Pasco County.
I'm sure your District staff is aware that we will soon launch a study to
determine the water sources which should next be developed to serve this
tri-county area. Our staff has coordinated this study plan with your
staff as well as with the Corps of Engineers at Jacksonville. The study
should lead to detailed planning and ultimately to construction of water
production and transmission facilities. I'm sure you will agree that the
time required to move from feasibility study, through a testing program,
to detailed design, construction and operation will probably be in the
neighborhood of five years. Even this schedule is considered optimistic
by many.

Thus, it appears that we should look to existing developed or partially
developed sources at the earliest practicable date. One of these is the
Starkey Wellfield. The Authority is interested in exploring with the
