10. Permittee shall within the time limits hereinafter set forth, complete the fol-
lowing items, and if Permittee fails to complete them by the specified date, then
this Permit shall become null and void.
a. The Permittee shall continue to operate and maintain existing totalizing flow
meters or if other flow measuring devices are used they shall be approved in
writing by the Director of the Resource Regulation Department on all withdrawal
points. Such devices shall have and maintain an accuracy within five percent
of the actual flow under installed conditions. Any designated withdrawal
points not equipped with such devices on the date the Consumptive Use Permit
is granted shall be so equipped within 120 days of the Permit date or upon
completion of construction of the withdrawal facility, unless an extension
is approved in writing by District Staff.
Total flow from each designated withdrawal point shall be calculated and re-
corded on a monthly basis and reported, on forms furnished, to the District
by the 10th day of the following month.
Reports shall be addressed to: Processing and Records Section
Southwest Florida Water Management District
5060 U. S. Highway 41 South
Brooksville, Florida 33512
b. Total flow from the well field shall be recorded on a daily basis. Reports
of daily flow for each weekly period shall be made by Permittee, in writing,
to the District on the following Monday; such weekly period shall commence
at 12:01 A.M. on Saturday of each week. Daily pumpage shall be made avail-
able upon reasonable verbal or telephone request by District Staff.
c. Water quality analysis for chloride, sulfate, conductivity and total dissolved
solids shall be done on a regular quarterly basis on samples from Well No. 1
(User ID No. 21-2) and reports furnished to the District by the 10th day of
each month for the preceding sampling period.
In addition, until such time as a Regional Monitor Network is implemented
under CUP No. 206676, the Water Quality/Level Monitoring program currently

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

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 Saturday of each week.
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 preceding weekly average elevations and divided
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 elevations in the monitoring wells 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 than 5 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. At any time the weekly average elevation (non-cumulative) for any
regulatory well falls greater than 5 feet below the regulatory level for
that well, the District Staff may give notice to the Permittee and require
that Permittee investigate the causes for the drawdowns and submit a report
of such investigation to the District within 14 days of receipt of such
notice. The report shall set forth any action taken or proposed to be
taken to avoid recurring elevations that are greater than the 5 feet below
regulatory levels. If such lower levels recur, the District, after notice,
may hold a hearing at which the Permittee will be given an opportunity to
show cause why the District should not reconsider and modify the terms and
conditions of this Permit so as to further avoid lowering levels below
During the first 30 months of this permit, the Permittee may cause the levels
set forth herein to be exceeded on a recurring basis, but such authorization
is limited as follows: Recurrenceshall not exceed six (6) consecutive weeks
or more than a total of eight (8) weeks during any annual period commencing
November 30, 1982 and November 30, 1983.
11. The total combined daily withdrawal on an average weekly basis from the Cosme-Odessa
and Section 21 Well Fields shall, as demonstrated during previous operation, con-
tinue to be reasonably balanced between the two well fields.

for the purpose first of meeting water supply requirements of the City of St.
Petersburg. Included in the total quantity set forth in paragraph 6 is one
million gallons per day (average annual) which is authorized for withdrawal and
use by West Coast Regional Water Supply Authority to supply supplemental water
to the area supplied by the Northwest Hillsborough Regional Well Field at
times when water supply requirements for such water supply area cannot be met

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

14. 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
