Dear Don: /

Please refer to the "5-party Agreement" of November 14, 1973,
that among other things, imposed temporary restrictions on
pumping from the Cosme-Odessa and Section 21 well fields. Sub-
section 3(d) of section 27A of the Agreement provides that
production shall be reasonably balanced between the two fields.

The water resources of northwestern Hillsborough County
are under considerable strain as a result of pumping at high
rates for export. It is the intent of subsection 3(d) not
only to limit the combined withdrawal but also to provide a
reasonable pumping balance so that neither area is strained
in excess of the conditions otherwise permitted by the
Agreement.

The Agreement does not define a "reasonable balance." I
myself would not object to a difference o' 10 percent (on the
total) between the withdrawals of the two fields. Thus as
long as each withdrawal fell in the range of 45 to 55 per-
cent of the total, I would accept such values as being
"reasonably" in balance. Consequently, I feel that with-
drawals that fall outside of the 45-55 range of percent are
"unreasonable."

I attach a summary of pumping from these two well fields
and call your attention to the imbalance that resulted during
8 of the 12 weeks for the 12 week period beginning Novemer 3, 1973.

7 42.8 57.2
8 32.0 68.0
9 37.5 62.5
11 64.4 35.6

These results are derived from the weekly monitor results
prepared by your staff. They indicate that unreasonable bal-
ances were obtained during eight of the first twelve weeks
of regulation.

This is not a good record at all.

I grant that the accumulated record is in reasonable
balance. Even so, a short-term unbalance -- such as that for
week 8 -- can be damaging and I suggest that a greater effort
should be made to comply with subsection 3(d).
Yours truly,
