Dear (Executive Director):


Chapter 17-40.10, Florida Administrative Code, requires that

the Department of Environmental Regulation review all rules of the

Water Management Districts to determine their consistency with

the State Water Policy. This letter will establish an agreed upon

format for review of existing rules, as well as new district rules

as they are being promulgated.

For existing rules, the Department of Environmental Regulation

will begin its review immediately. Rule reviews shall be conducted

according to subject area. For instance, the consumptive use

permitting rules of each district will be reviewed concurrently.

The Department of Environmental Regulation will conclude its

review of all existing Water Management District rules by

December 31, 1981. District responses to the department review

will be submitted to the Department of Environmental Regulation

within 45 days of receipt of the review. Either party thereafter

may request a conference to resolve any differences of opinion.

At any time thereafter, the Department of Environmental

Regulation may request in writing to any Water Management District

that it initiate rulemaking before the Governing Board to consider

changes the Department of Environmental Regulation considers

necessary to assure consistency with the state water policy.

Subsequently, the Department of Environmental Regulation may

take such steps as it deems necessary under its rules and the

Florida Statutes to enforce the State Water Policy.

For new rules, all rules of the Water Management Districts

proposed for adoption after July 1, 1981, shall, except for emer-

gency rules, technical amendments, and others which may be waived

by the Department of Environmental Regulation, be submitted to the

Department of Environmental Regulation for review prior to adoption.

The Department of Environmental Regulation shall complete its

review within 30 days of receipt of the proposed rule. After the

30-day period, or upon receipt of the Department of Environmental

Regulation's comments, the Water Management District may proceed

with its rulemaking before the Governing Board. The Department

of Environmental Regulation shall be made a party to the proceedings

upon its request. The Department of Environmental Regulation may

thereafter take such steps as it deems necessary under its rules and

the Florida Statutes to enforce the water policy.

The Department of Environmental Regulation and the Districts

should maintain as much flexibility in this review process as possible,

in order to insure compliance with the letter and spirit of the State

Water Policy, Chapter 17-40, Florida Administrative Code.



Sincerely.
