RE: Letter from John Logan Dated February 5, 1974
I reviewed Mr. Logan's letter asking for a written explanation
about the Five Party Agreement.
"Regulatory levels" which Mr. Logan inquires about are the
weekly elevations of the potentiometric surface of the Floridan
Aquifer as determined cumulatively at the observation wells
specified. Weekly average elevations for each of the respec-
tive locations are calculated by adding together the high
reading for each day of the week and the low reading for each
day of the week, then dividing the sum thereof by 14. The
resulting number will be the weekly average elevation for the
Each week this number will be added to similar numbers for
each of the previous weeks from November 1, 1973 through the
current week and divided by the number of weeks to determine
the cumulative weekly average elevation.
This cumulative weekly average elevation will only be permitted
to drop below the elevations prescribed for the respective
wells during the first 6 weeks of each production year.
The weekly average elevation of the south Pasco well field
observation wells could be as much as 4 feet below the
elevations prescribed for the respective observation wells, but
the cumulative average shall not be below the actual elevations
set. The weekly average elevations of the Cosme-Odessa and
Mr. D. R. Feaster 2 3-13-74
Section 21 well fields may not be more than 3 feet below
the elevations set for the respective observation wells.
Examples of actual calculations would probably be helpful
in illustrating the application of the formula prescribed
in the agreement.
