Dear Secretary Smathers:

Renumbering of Chapters 16G, 16H, 161,
S16J and 16 Florida Administrative Code
As you know five water management districts were created and
i exist under Chpter 373, Florida 3ater Resources Act of 1972.
Theese water rnagezent districts and their corresponding rule
chapters designated in the Florida Administrative Code, are
as follows:
1. northwest Florida 1ater Manager=ent District;
Chapter 16G-1, et sea., Florida Administrative Code

Chapter 16C-1, et seq.z, Florida Administrative Code,

Chapter 161-1, et seq., Florida Administrative Code.
4. Southwest Florida Water Mana*gerent District;
Chapters 16J-0, et seIy, Florida Administrative Code.

5. Central and Southern Florida Flood Control
District (South Florida water Manageient District);
Chapter 16K-1, et seq., Florida Administrative Code.
As indicated, these water manacgeent district rules have continued
to utilize the control rules (16) assigned by the Department of
State to the Depa;rtent of Natural Resources.
The Environmental Reorcanization Act of 1975 transferred the
power, duties and functions of the Department of natural Re-
sources relating to water manamcent as set forth in Chapter 373,
! Florida Statutes, to the newly created Departxent of Environ-en tal

Regulation (Section 20.261(7), Florida Statutes). The Deprtre;nt
of Environmental Reulation exerciser general supervisory authority
over all water management districts, and is responsible for the
administration of Chapter 373, Florida Statutes, at the state
level (Section 373.,26, Florida Statutes). The rules of the
water management districts which administer Chapter 373, Florida
Statutes, at the district level relate to the rules of the De-
partment which effectuate Chapter 37 3, Florida Statutes, through-
ouct the state.t ir apparet that ts e rule should b corr n

5. Central and Southern Florida Flood Control
District (South Florida Water Management District);

Apparently, the Dep-artment of Iatural Resources wishes to use
the chapter nuibers now utilized by the water nanageI:ient districts
for designating new department rules which it expects to pror.ulgate.
"Additionally, it follows that the renu-bering and subsequent re-
locating of the water management district rules are necessary to
effectuate the legislative intent expressed in the Envirorunental
Reorganization Act of 1975.
