Subject: Minimum Stream Flows
Dear Dr. Rote:
I enjoyed meeting briefly with you at the Bay Area Scientific Information
Symposium in May. As you noted at the Symposium, determination of minimum
flows for watercourses discharging into Tampa Bay will be necessary for
proper management of the Bay's resources. We have begun the technical work
which will eventually lead to the establishment of minimum flows on the
Alafia and Little Manatee Rivers. The research on the Alafia River has been
completed while studies of the Little Manatee are now underway.
As promised, enclosed are the final reports on the Alafia River. The U.S.
Geological Survey's expertise is utilized to develop the necessary hydrologic
and hydraulic information. That information is then used by the biologists to
assess the impact of flows on natural systems and to recommend flow rates
necessary to maintain desirable biological conditions.
After you have reviewed the reports, we would appreciate any comments, crit-
icisms or suggestions you may have. We look forward to your reply.
