Action Item No. 6
Response to 1 under No. 6
The Authority and the City of St. Petersburg reduced production of the
Cosme-Odessa Wellfield to 5.0 MGD (average) on February 3, 1993. The
Authority plans to maintain this production level until the master venturi
meter for this wellfield is completely installed. The Authority had
indicated that this activity would be completed within six (6) weeks from
February 17, 1993. Currently, the meter installation is scheduled to
begin March 18, 1993. It is anticipated that the Cosme-Odessa Wellfield
will be shut down for less than 24 hours during the installation. It is
anticipated that the installation will be complete by April 1, 1993, The
wellfield will be operated within all constraints of the current permit
following installation of the master venturi meter. The District and the
Authority agreed that the existing permit does not include a peak month
quantity; therefore, the Authority and the City are not required to meet
any specific peak month quantity limit.
The installation and testing of the new master venturi meter for the
Cosme-Odessa Wellfield will provide the assurance the District needs that
wellfield production is not exceeding the current permit conditions. The
reduction in pumpage at the Cosme-Odessa Wellfield to 5.0 MGD provides the
assurance, until the new master meter is installed, that the wellfield
production is not exceeding its permitted quantities. The attached Table
1 will be provided to the District monthly.

Response to 2 and 3 under No. 6
During the March 10 meeting the District requested that the Authority
provide documentation that the Section 21 and South Pasco Wellfields have
been operated in compliance with the current permits since issuance of the
compliance notices. The following calculation is provided to the District
as assurance that the Section 21 and South Pasco Wellfields are operated
within the constraints of their current permits. The Authority and the
City of St. Petersburg evaluated, on a monthly basis from January 1987
through December 1992, the difference between summing all the individual
wellfield meters and the total of the two Cosme WTP influent venturis.
This evaluation shows that the highest monthly percent difference for all
the- we-Ilf eatd- mete-rs emu-atily vercu-s- the meterd-. p1.an.t. in.flufe.t.
venturis was 18 percent. Therefore, to assure that a single wellfield is
not exceeding its current permitted quantities, the 18% meter rei
variance calculated for the whole system was attributed to the Se t, Oeianags
Wellfield and the South Pasco Wellfield individually. Subtra g the ,
difference from the average day permitted quantity results in a o production <
rate that prevents the pumpage from exceeding the permitted 4antities.
The Cosme-Odessa Wellfield is already reduced to 5.0 MGD average; --
therefore, this calculation is not required for this wellfiefl MAR 1 ,

Wellfield Permitted Difference Producto
Section 21 13.0 2.34 = 10.66 (MGD)
South Pasco 16.9 3.04 = 13.86 (MGD)

By using the above calculations, the total reduction in pumpage of all the
wellfields from the permitted average day quantities, including the
reduction at the Cosme-Odessa Wellfield, is 13.38 MGD (2.34 + 3.04 + 8.0).
This is a 31% reduction in pumpage, which is significantly greater than
any calculated metering discrepancies for the whole system.
The District had calculated an average day value of 9.9 MGD for the
Section 21 Wellfield and 12.18 MGD for the South Pasco Wellfield. The
Authority and the City of St. Petersburg agreed to use these average day
pumpage limits for the Section 21 and South Pasco Wellfields until the
District approves all meter testing program results and the new meters for
the Section 21 and South Pasco Wellfields are installed.
Following receipt of the District's approval of the meter testing results
and installation of the new meters, the Authority and the City of St.
Petersburg will operate the wellfields within the conditions of the
existing permits.

Action Item No. 7
Response to 1 under No. 7
This question has been addressed under the response to Action Item No. 6.
Response to 2 under No. 7

The hydrologic testing of the Cosme-Odessa Wellfield was discussed at the
March 10 meeting. It was decided by all present to suspend the hydrologic
testing until completion of the meter testing program and District review
and approval of the testing results. Following receipt of the District's
approval of the meter testing results, the Authority and the City of St.
Petersburg will review with the District the details of the hydrologic
test for the Cosme-Odessa Wellfield.
Response to 3 under No. 7
> w 'Mar*.
The Authority and the City of St. Petersburg will adhere to the auctionn %
limitations specified in this letter for the Cosme-Odessa, Se9tion 21 and
South Pasco Wellfields until the District has reviewed and; proved all
results of the meter testing program and the new meters areinstalled-

Response to 4 under No. 7
See Table 2. This table will be sent to John Heuer, Director of e-ampa
Permitting Department, by the 10th day of the following month in response
to the compliance notices. This information is not being sent to the
Permits Data Group in Brooksville. The District and the Authority will
evaluate the usefulness of this report format during the permit review
process.
Response to 5 under No. 7
See Table 1. This table will be sent to John Heuer, Director of the Tampa
Permitting Department, by the 10th day of the following month in response
to the compliance notices. This information is not being sent to the
Permits Data Group in Brooksville. The District and the Authority will
evaluate the usefulness of this report format during the permit review
process.
The demands for the City of St. Petersburg are currently being met by
increasing the water supplied from the Regional System. Pinellas County
has increased production from the Eldridge/Wilde Wellfield within the
permitted limits. This has made additional water available from the
Rsaional System to moot the domandc of tho City of .+ PotzArqhljrO.

Action Item No. 9

The Authority's response in its February 17, 1993 letter provides
sufficient documentation to clearly show that when all three wellfields
are considered together, the total average annual day permitted quantities
have not been exceeded. Table 1 shows the daily production rates that are
meeting the current demands at the Lake Park influent and the Cosme Water
Treatment Plant influent. The average day production for the month of
February at all the wellfields is below limits established by the District
in their February 10, 1993 letter. This information demonstrates that
water conservation measures are not needed at this time, since water
demands of the City and the Northwest Hillsborough area are being met by
the Regional System. This is primarily due to Pinellas County increasing
production at tne Eldrldge/W1lde Well ield, thereby reducing the nood for
water from the Regional System.by Pinellas County.
