RE: Outstanding Florida Water

Dear Chuck:

I have just received from DER a copy of the 51 page booklet filed
by Florida Defenders of the Environment with the Department
entitled AN OUTSTANDING FLORIDA WATER PETITION FOR THE OKLAWAHA
RIVER. I urge you to get copies for distribution to interested
members of the Land Council.

The petition proposes an Outstanding Florida Water boundary
consisting of approximately 45 miles of the Oklawaha River from
the north end of Lake Griffin to Eureka Lock and Dam. Much of
this is bounded on the east by Ocala National Forest and I am not
aware of any of the Land Council members who own property in the
vicinity. However, this is another example of how the OFW
process is being used.

It is interesting to note that the petition includes a letter
from Elton Gissendanner expressing DNR's support of the petition
for this designation. This also includes a resolution from St.
Johns River Water Management District in support of the
designation.

This particular petition may be one of the least objectionable
because of its location along Ocala National Forest. However, I
would be very interested to see what impact it might have on
Congressman Buddy McKay's grove. (It may have been destroyed by
freeze, I am not sure, but I believe that he owns grove along the
Oklawaha between Moss Bluff and Silver Run.)

Sincerely yours,



L.M. Budd Blain
