Wellfields, which are located in Northwest Hillsborough County. These wellfields have

been in continuous operation since 1929 and 1963, respectively. Both applications

requested that withdrawals from the wellfields continue at the rates previously

permitted by the District in 1976.

3. Also, in 1981, the Authority and the County filed an application with the

District to renew, modify and consolidate the consumptive use permits for the 16

separate distribution systems currently supplying water to Northwest Hillsborough

County and to develop new wells in the area. This entire project was identified as the

Northwest Hillsborough Regional Wellfield. The application was amended by the

Authority and the County on April 28, 1982, May 27, 1982 and March 17, 1983. As finally

amended, the application requested a total average annual combined withdrawal from

existing and proposed wells of 8.8 million gallons per day and a total maximum daily

combined permitted withdrawal from existing and proposed wells of 18.4 million gallons

per day.

4. In July, 1983, the District staff issued a draft report recommending the

issuance of the consumptive use permits for all three wellfields. The permit proposed for

the Cosme-Odessa Wellfield would reduce the currently permitted annual average

withdrawal rate from 19 million gallons per day to 13 million gallons per day and would

expire on September 1, 1992. The permit proposed for the Section 21 Wellfield would

reduce the currently permitted annual withdrawal rate from 18 million gallons per day to

13 million gallons per day and would expire on September 1, 1992. The permit proposed

for the Northwest Hillsborough Regional Wellfield would reduce the total average annual

permitted withdrawal rate from 9.21 million gallons per day to 8.8 million gallons per day

and would reduce the total maximum daily permitted withdrawal rate from 19.94 million

gallons per day to 18.4 million gallons per day. The proposed Northwest Hillsborough

Regional Wellfield permit would expire on September 1, 1987.

5. On July 18, 1983, the Authority, the City and the County filed with the_

District three separate petitions for formal hearing. Among other things, these petitions

listed as disputed issues of material fact the reasonableness of several permit conditions

proposed by the District staff. Also, the petitions requested the appointment of a

hearing officer from the Division of Administrative Hearings to conduct the Section

120.57(1), Florida Statutes, proceeding. See Section 120.57(1Xb)13, Fla. Stat. (Ch. 83-78,

Laws of Florida).

6. On August 3, 1983, the District Governing Board granted the Petitioners'

request to consolidate the three petitions and transferred them to the Division of

Administrative Hearings. Also, at the same time the District granted Tom Fairfield

Brown and his wife, Katherine C. Brown's, petition to intervene in opposition to the

permit applications, subject to their proving the allegations of the petition at hearing. In

September, 1982, the Governing Board had similarly permitted Benjamin H. Hill, II to

intervene in opposition.

7. In the course of complying with the Hearing Officer's Order, the Authority and

the District staff resolved their differences. Both agree that the three consumptive use

permits proposed by the District staff in July, 1983, as amended in October, 1983, should

be issued. Also, the Petitioners settled their differences with Intervenors, Tom Fairfield

Brown and Katherine C. Brown, and Intervenor Benjamin H. Hill, I. These settlements

took the form of stipulated dismissals of the Petitions to Intervene, which were

submitted to the Hearing Officer. Consequently, no disputed issues remained for the

Hearing Officer's determination. Therefore, on January 26, 1984, the Hearing Officer

entered an Order of Dismissal of all proceedings before the Division of Administrative

Hearings, and remanded the cases to the District for such further proceedings as it may

deem appropriate.

8. Each of the three applications pending in these proceedings remanded to the

Board, together with all supplemental information submitted by the applicants in support

thereof, have been reviewed by District staff with respect to consumptive use permitting

criteria. Based upon such reviews, staff has submitted "Evidentiary Evaluation" reports

dated February 8, 1984, to the File of Record in this proceeding, with copies furnished to

the parties, to the Governing Board, and to interested persons who have requested a copy

of such reports. The Board has reviewed such reports and has heard general and

supplemental testimony relating to such reports and as supplemented by such testimony

such reports are accepted by the Board and adopted by reference.
9. The Section 21 Wellfield consists of eight public supply wells located on 584

acres, and the Cosme Odessa Wellfield consists of 23 public supply wells located on 591.5

acres, both located in Northwest Hillsborough County. The Consumptive Use Permit

issued by the District on August 4, 1976, permitted withdrawals from the Section 21

Wellfield at an annual average rate of 18 million gallons of water per day at a maximum

daily rate of 22 mgd. The Consumptive Use Permit issued by the District on August 4,

1976, permitted withdrawals from the Cosme-Odessa Wellfield at an annual average rate

of 19 mgd at a maximum daily rate of 22 mgd. Withdrawals at each wellfield are subject

to regulatory levels in select monitor wells. Each 1976 permit prohibits withdrawals

which would cause the weekly average cumulative potentiometric surface elevations to

fall below these regulatory levels, or which could cause the weekly average elevations to

fall more than three feet below the regulatory levels. In addition, the 1976 permits

prohibit total combined withdrawals from the Cosme-Odessa and Section 21 Wellfields

from exceeding 168 million gallons per week (equivalent to an average annual daily
withdrawal per wellfield of 12 mgd).
10. The Northwest Hillsborough Regional Wellfield currently consists of 16

dispersed systems under separate consumptive use permits. The Applicant requests

R02-28-84




renewal without change for 13 of these systems, renewal of the Sheldon Road permit

with an increase of the average annual permitted withdrawal from 341,000 gpd to 2 mgd,

and an increase of the maximum daily permitted withdrawal from 1 mgd to 3 mgd, and

the elimination of two systems currently permitted. It is proposed that these systems be

consolidated under a single consumptive use permit, and that in addition to modification

of an existing well at the Sheldon Road Wellfield, six new wells will be constructed and

operated at other locations. Five of these wells will be located along Gunn Highway and

one will be constructed on Van Dyke Road. The Application contemplates the gradual

phasing out of some wells in the existing distribution system as the new wells are

constructed. The application, as amended, requests a reduction in the total average

annual combined permitted withdrawals from wells supplying water to the County's

northwest water system from 9.21 mgd to 8.8 mgd, and a reduction in maximum daily

withdrawals from 19.94 mgd to 18.4 mgd.

11. A proposed Consumptive Use Permit for each of the three applications has

been drafted by district staff and has been concurred in by the Applicants. A proposed

Consumptive Use Permit for the Section 21 Wellfield is attached to this Order and made

a part hereof as Exhibit 1. A proposed Consumptive Use Permit for the Cosme-Odessa

Wellfield is attached to this Order and made a part hereof as Exhibit 2. A proposed

Consumptive Use Permit for the Northwest Hillsborough Regional Wellfield is attached

to the Order and made a part hereof as Exhibit 3.

12. Withdrawals at both Section 21 and Cosme-Odessa Wellfields would be reduced
from currently permitted quantities to average annual withdrawals of 13 mgd each. Only
12 mgd at each wellfield is allocated to meet the City's needs, with the other 1 mgd per
wellfield allocated to the Authority for the sole purpose of supplying the County's

northwest water supply system as limited by the conditions of the proposed permits.

Each permit would continue without change currently permitted maximum daily

Page 5 of 11

02-24-84
R02-28-84




withdrawals of 22 mgd per wellfield. Withdrawals are required to be reasonably balanced

between the two wellfields, but to facilitate supply to the northwest County system

withdrawals would not be limited to 168 million gallons per week. Additional flexibility

will be provided by authorizing withdrawals during a total of eight weeks annually which

would allow the weekly average potentiometric surface elevations to fall more than

three feet below the regulatory levels, so long as they do not drop more than five feet

below such levels. Each permit would require the applicants to investigate all complaints

related to water withdrawals and take mitigative action where appropriate.

13. Notice of each application was published and given as required by law and

District rules, and over 500 objections were received directed to one or more or all of

the three applications. The principal relevant objections relate to the potential for

wellfield withdrawals to lower levels in domestic wells, affect water quality in domestic

wells, lower lake levels, or adversely affect the ecology of the area. A number of

conferences were scheduled and conducted by district staff with the applicants and

objectors. Conferences were conducted in May 1982 and June 1983 respecting the

Cosine-Odessa and Section 21 Wellfield applications. Conferences were conducted in

July 1982, August 1982 and June 1983 respecting the Northwest Hillsborough Regional

Wellfield application. At these conferences the objectors were advised regarding the

matters contained in the staff reports and the evaluations of their concerns as addressed

therein. Many of these objectors attended this public hearing, and the Board has

considered their concerns as expressed by written objections and by oral testimony.

14. Withdrawals at Section 21 and Cosme-Odessa Wellfields in the quantities

proposed to be permitted, have resulted in and will continue to result in the level of the

potentiometric surface to be lowered more than five feet beyond the wellfield

properties. These effects have existed for a number of years and adverse results from

those effects have been addressed by the City in its program of investigation and

LEGAL DEPT. DRAFT

mitigation. Withdrawals will not cause the level of water in any lake or other

impoundment to be lowered more than one foot in any area beyond either wellfield

except that Lakes Round, Saddleback and Crenshaw adjacent to Section 21 Wellfield may

be affected by a foot or more of drawdown under prolonged dry conditions when the

wellfield is pumped at its maximum capacity. However, these lakes are augmented from

wells controlled by the residents around these lakes. Subject to the conditions of

proposed permits, the drawdowns associated with continued withdrawals in the quantities

proposed for permitting are not expected to cause additional significant adverse effects

upon the water resources of the area.

15. Withdrawals from the Northwest Hillsborough Regional Wellfield will result in

the potentiometrie surface to be lowered more than five feet outside well site

boundaries. However, the proposed permit is conditioned to require the applicant to

investigate all complaints related to withdrawals throughout the Wellfield and take

mitigative action as appropriate. The proposed permit also contains a condition requiring

the applicants to submit a proposed wellfield regulatory program within 18 months from

the issuance of the permit.

16. Withdrawals at each of the three wellfields, based upon quantities currently

permitted and upon quantities proposed for permitting have caused and will continue to

cause the water table to be lowered so that lake stages or vegetation may be adversely

and significantly affected on lands other than those owned, leased or otherwise

controlled by the applicants. Water table declines may result in lake level declines which

over a prolonged period could result in a condition of low water stress on lake habitats

and lake dependent wildlife. Low rainfall combined with pumpage has historically caused

greater-than-normal declines on lakes. Temporary recovery to normal levels has

occurred when exceptionally high rainfall was experienced.

17. It is appropriate that a permit for the Northwest Hillsborough Regional

System, because of the six new source wells proposed, be issued for a shorter term than

permits for the "older" wellfields. Yet, because of their interrelationships and proposed

interconnection, it is appropriate that all three be reassessed at the same time. It is

proposed that the Section 21 and Cosme-Odessa Wellfield permits expire on September 1,

1992, and that the Northwest permit expire on September 1, 1987. It should be

anticipated that the Board will consider renewal of the Northwest permit in 1987 only to

September 1, 1992.

18. It is anticipated that the Authority, consistent with its contractual

commitments, and to enable it to disperse the wells necessary to supply the County's

northwest water supply system by eliminating the need to construct redundant

transmission mains, will exchange water from the Section 21 and Cosme-Odessa

Wellfields and the County's system to supply the needs of both the City and the County

during the term of each permit. Nevertheless, average annual withdrawals of 24 mgd are

authorized for the City's use to September 1, 1992, and average annual withdrawals of

8.8 mgd are authorized for the County's use in its northwest water supply system to

September 1, 1987. Part of the 8.8 mgd for the County, when it cannot be met from the

County's northwest system, may be met by withdrawals from Cosme-Odessa and Section

21 Wellfields in quantities not to exceed a maximum daily withdrawal rate of 6 mgd and

an average annual combined withdrawal rate of 2 mgd.

19. Withdrawals at Section 21 Wellfield in the quantities proposed to be permitted

and subject to the conditions set forth in Exhibit 1 will be in compliance with all

applicable Conditions for Issuance of Permits set forth in Section 40D-2.301, Florida

Administrative Code, except Sections 40D-2.301(2)(e), (3Xb) and (3Xd), for which

exceptions appear appropriate.

20. Withdrawals at the Cosme-Odessa Wellfield in the quantities proposed to be

permitted and subject to the conditions set forth in Exhibit 2 will be in compliance with

all applicable Conditions for Issuance of Permits set forth in Section 40D-2.301, Florida

Administrative Code, except Sections 40D-2.301(2Xe) and (3Xb), for which exceptions

appear appropriate.

21. Withdrawals within the Northwest Hillsborough Regional Wellfield in the

quantities proposed to be permitted and subject to the conditions set forth in Exhibit 3

will be in compliance with all applicable Conditions for Issuance of Permits set forth in

Section 40D-2.301, Florida Administrative Code, except Sections 40D-2.301(2Xe) and

(3)(b), for which exceptions appear appropriate.

IN ACCORDANCE with the foregoing, and in consideration of applicable laws and

regulations, the Board makes the following
CONCLUSIONS OF LAW:

22. The Applicant for Section 21 Wellfield has established that the intended

consumptive use in the quantities, and subject to the conditions set forth in Exhibit 1:
a) is a reasonable, beneficial use;

b) is consistent with the public interest; and

c) will not interfere with any legal use of water existing at the time

of the application.

23. Good cause has been shown for exception to Section 40D-2.301(2Xe), (3)(b) and

(3)(d) for Section 21 Wellfield, and such exceptions are granted, being consistent with the

City for that monitoring program will be submitted to the District by March 1 of each
year.

d. The Permittee shall manage the pumping from Section 21 Well Field so as not to cause
the cumulative weekly average elevations of the potentiometric surface of the
Floridan Aquifer to be lower than the regulatory levels for each of the wells listed
below:

The weekly average elevations shall be calculated by averaging the hourly readings for
the week each weekly period shall commence at 12:01 A.M. on Saturdays of each
week. '1 9'

The weekly average elevations shall continue to be determined cumulatively. The
cumulative weekly average elevations shall be calculated by adding each weekly
average elevation to the preceding weekly average elevations and dividing by the total
number of weeks; the cumulative weekly average elevations shall commence on
October 1 each year. Cumulative weekly average elevations shall not carry over from
one production year to another. Production causing cumulative weekly average eleva-
tions in the monitoring swells to drop below the regulatory levels shall only be
permitted during the first eight weeks of each production year.

e. Permittee shall continue to manage the well field in a manner as to avoid recurring
weekly average elevations (non-cumulative) of the potentiometric surface of the
Floridan Aquifer that are more then 3 feet below regulatory levels for the monitor
wells set forth in Condition 10d. The District will continue to collect the water level
recorder hydrographs from each regulatory well on a regular basis, and verify weekly
average elevations calculated for each well. The weekly average elevation (non-
cumulative) of the potentiometric surface of the Floridan Aquifer shall not be allowed
to drop more than 3 feet below the levels set forth in 10d above, for more than a total
of 8 weeks on an annual basis. During the 8 weeks, weekly average elevation (non-
cumulative) shall not drop more than 5 feet below the levels set forth in 10d above.
Weekly average elevations (non-cumulative) more than 3 feet below regulatory levels
are subject to District review in light of changed conditions.

11. The total combined daily withdrawal on an average weekly basis from the Cosie-Odessa
(CUP 200004) and Section 21 (CUP Z00003) Well Fields shall, as demonstrated during
previous operatica, continue to be reasonably balanced between the two well fields with
regulatory provisions of Condition 10e considered.

12. Of the 13 MGD set forth in paragraph 6 of this Permit, 12 MGD are authorized and intended
for the purpose of meeting water supply requirements of the City of St. Petersburg. The
additional 1 MGD (average annual) is authorized solely for withdrawal by West Coast
Regional Water Supply Authority at a rate not to exceed 3 MGD for any single day, for ase
to supply supplemental water to the northwest Hillsborough service area when water supply
requirements of 8.8 MGD average annual and 18.4 MGD maximum day for such are not met
under Consumptive Use Permit No. 206676. At no time, however, shall the maximum daily
withdrawal rate for any purpose exceed 22 MGD.

13. The District may, at a future date, establish a minimum water level in the aquifer or
aquifers hydrologically associated with these withdrawals which may require the Permittee
to limit withdrawal from these groundwater sources at times when water levels fall below
these minimums. (Sec. 373.042, F.S.)

Chloride analyses shall be performed monthly and reported monthly according to the
procedure outlined in 10b above. The report shall include the date of sampling and a
description of the sampling method used.

e. Within 18 months from the issuance of this Permit, the Permittee shall submit a
proposal for establishing artesian aquifer regulatory levels and/or other regulatory
methods for the NWH Regional Well System. Such proposal shall be reviewed by
District Staff in coordination with the Permittee for the formulation of alternative
regulatory methodologies which may include proposals which would necessitate
modification of regulatory levels in adjacent well fields. Any proposal for such
modification shall be presented to the Governing Board in Public Hearing based upon
application submitted by Permittee for modification of such permits and such
conditions as may be necessary and appropriate.

f. The Permittee shall establish a testing and data collection program to determine site
specific geologic and hydrologic characteristics of the aquifer in the vicinity of wells
40 through 45. The plan shall include provisions for geophysical logging, well
construction design, water quality sampling and analysis, a timetable for well
construction, and aquifer pump tests. The plan shall receive review and written
approval of the Director of Resource Regulation, and shall be implemented during
construction of each of wells 40 through 45.

g. Within 120 days from issuance of this Permit, the Permittee shall submit a letter
report summarizing the schedule for retiring the withdrawal facilities numbered 1
through 24. This schedule shall not be binding upon the Permittee but shall represent
the Permittee's future plans for these existing wells using the best available
information, as it is anticipated that the construction of wells 40 through 45 together
with collection pipeline may be in two or more phases. Changes in this schedule shall
be reported in writing to the Director of Resource Regulation. Furthermore, full
consideration shall be given to maintaining each well as a standby well or a monitor
well prior to any consideration for abandonment. No well shall be abandoned without
prior written approval of the Director of Resource Regulation. Withdrawal facilities
numbered 25 through 38 are expected to be maintained as part of the Northwest
Hillsborough Regional System.

11. At such times that the total quantities set forth in paragraph 6 of this Permit are not met by
withdrawals from the facilities listed in paragraph 7, with the Permittee making a reason-
able effort to maximize withdrawals from such facilities, the difference may be made up
through withdrawals from Cosme-Odessa and Section 21 Well Fields not to exceed maximum
daily combined withdrawals of 6 MGD nor to exceed average annual combined withdrawals
of 2 MGD from such well fields. Such supplemental withdrawals are authorized by Consump-
tive Use Permit Numbers 200003 (Section 21) and 200004 (Cosme-Odessa) subject neverthe-
less to all conditions set forth in such permits. All such withdrawals for supplemental supply
shall be reasonably balanced between the two well fields. At no time shall Permittee's
combined total withdrawals, regardless of source, exceed the authorized quantities set forth
in paragraph 6 of this Permit.

12. The District reserves the right, at all reasonable times, to collect water samples for
analysis. The District may, upon prior notice, collect water samples from any or all with-
drawal points listed on the Permit, or may, at the option of the District, provide mailable
containers to the Permittee, and require the Permittee to forward samples from any or all
withdrawal points within a reasonable period of time prescribed.

13. The District may, at a future date, establish a minimum water level in the aquifer or
aquifers hydrologically associated with these withdrawals,. which may require the Permittee
to limit withdrawal from these groundwater sources at times when water levels fall below
these minimums. (Section 373.042, F.S.)

14. The Permittee shall continue to expand water conservation practices and programs including
water reuse and runoff reduction and shall provide an annual report for the previous year on
water conservation. The report will include an update of accomplishments of existing
programs and a summary of new programs. The report shall be submitted to the Director of
Resource Regulation by January 1 of each year.

15. The Permittee shall investigate all complaints related to withdrawal at the Northwest
Hillsborough Regional Well Field. All complaintants will make application to the Permittee
and must receive an investigative report within reasonable time from the Permittee in
response to their complaint. The Permittee shall file a report of the complaint, the findings
of facts, and any mitigating action taken by the Permittee to the District for review within
I fifteen (15) days of the receipt of any complaint. A summary report of these investigations
and mitigation activities for the previous water year shall be submitted by the tenth (10th)
day of January of each year.

16. West Coast Regional Water Supply Authority has submitted to the Director of Resource
Regulation an overall plan for future water supply sources and distribution for Hillsborough,
Pinellas and Pasco Counties. This plan includes proposed schedules and priorities for
designing, testing, financing and constructing withdrawal facilities, treatment facilities,
transmission lines and system interconnections. Water reuse options were considered. The
plan includes the following specific items:

a. Feasibility of interconnection between Cypress Creek Well Field and the Morris Bridge
Well Field.

b. Feasibility of increased supply to the St. Petersburg water distribution system from
the Cypress Creek Well Field.

c. Feasibility of interconnection between Starkey Well Field and the existing 84" pipeline
