Re: State Water Policy

Dear Terry:

At your suggestion we have tried to re-write the Sugar Cane
League's proposed amendment concerning property rights to
comport with the District's view of law. After much dis-
cussion we have come up with Attachment "A"

Also we have reviewed the general policies proposed by the
Department and have re-written the introductory language
and paragraphs 6. and 10. for clarity. These proposals are
on Attachment "B".

I have provided all water management district counsel with
copies of the attachments for their review and comment,
Hopefully, we can get some feedback on these proposals prior
to the workshop meeting on the first of May.

If you have any comments or questions, please contact me.
Very truly yours,



Stephen A. Walker
Attorney
