ORDER MODIFYING PERMIT PURSUANT TO
HEARING BEFORE GOVERNING BOARD
This Matter came on to be heard by the Governing Board of the Southwest
Florida Water Management District at a Public Hearing on May 2, 1978. Said

Public Hearing, being duly and properly noticed, was conducted at District Head-

quarters, 5060 U. S. Highway 41 South, Brooksville, Florida, and all parties

hereto were present or given the opportunity to be present, and, together with

the general public, were given an opportunity to present testimony and evidence.

The Board, having reviewed the application and all documents in the File of

Record, having heard testimony, and having received and examined all documentary

evidence, makes the following

FINDINGS OF FACT:
1. Applicant, City of New Port Richey, is the holder of Consumptive

Use Permit No. 7500013 granted by the Board on May 5, 1976, and thereafter recon-

firmed by Order No. 76-16 of this Board on November 3, 1976, which authorizes

the Applicant to make a combined average annual withdrawal of 3,000,000 gallons

of water per day, with a maximum combined withdrawal rate not to exceed 4,000,000

gallons during a single day, from four (4) production wells constructed by the

Applicant in the Starkey Well Field in Pasco County for public water supply

purposes.

2. Pursuant to Chapter 373, Florida Statutes, and Chapter 16J, Florida
Administrative Code, Applicant applied on March 1, 1978, to the Southwest Florida

Water Management District (Application No. 27804446) for Modification of Consumptive

Use Permit No. 7500013 to authorize different quantity limitations on the four

wells by removing the specific caps on each well.

3. Applicant initially requested increased total withdrawal quantities
for the Well Field, but has withdrawn such request. The sole consideration before

the Board in connection with this pending application is whether the present

pumpage limitations which limit each well to 750,000 gallons per day (annual

41-




average) and 1,000,000 gallons per day maximum should be removed so as to allow

the Applicant to better manage the existing facilities.

4. It is reasonable that the pumpage limitations be removed, but

nevertheless a maximum limitation should be continued so that pumpage from any

of the four wells during any single day is not to exceed 2,320,000 gallons.

Pumpage should be distributed among the four wells as evenly as possible.

5. Total authorized withdrawals shall not change. Applicant shall

continue to be authorized to withdraw 3 million gallons of water per day (average

annual) at a maximum withdrawal rate not to exceed 4 million gallons per day.

The permit shall expire on October 4, 1979.

6. The chloride monitor program made a condition of Permit No. 7500013

shall continue; however, because of sampling problems, City Well No. 7 may be

deleted. Such deletion will not effect the monitor program.

7. A proposed Modified Consumptive Use Permit is attached hereto as

Exhibit 1. Such proposed permit has been reviewed by the Applicant and the

Applicant has consented thereto.

8. The proposed modified Consumptive Use Permit is consistent with

the findings of fact contained in Order No. 76-16 of this Board and such findings

are readopted as part of this Order. No state of facts exist which would require

complete hydrologic re-evaluation of the Permit at this time.

In accordance with the foregoing, and in consideration of applicable

laws and regulations, the Board makes the following

CONCLUSIONS OF LAW:

I1. The Applicant has established that the consumptive use sought

to be modified:

a) is a reasonable, beneficial use;

b) is consistent with the public interest; and

c) will not interfere with any legal use of water

existing at the time of the application.

2. The consumptive use is in compliance with the requirements of

Chapter 373, Florida Statutes, and Chapter 16J, Florida Administrative Code.
Wherefore, upon consideration, it is

ORDERED

1. That the Executive Director of Southwest Florida Water Management

District or a duly delegated member of his staff, is authorized and directed

to issue a Consumptive Use Permit pursuant to the above numbered application in


Page 2 of 3












substantially the form, and subject to the terms and conditions set forth in

Exhibit 1, attached hereto.

2. That such modified Consumptive Use Permit supercedes Consumptive

Use Permit No. 7500013 which is cancelled and rendered void.
