Re: State Water Policy Property Rights

Dear Secretary Tschinkel:

This will supplement the letter we sent to you July 20, 1981. (Our
letter was erroneously dated June 20, 1981.) The amendments proposed
by Tom Brown for the proposed policy statement are supported by the
Southwest Florida Water Management District. A copy of the specific
wording is attached. We do not view these amendments as materially
affecting the meaning of the earlier draft. Consequently, the
analysis contained inour letter of July 20, 1981 remains unchanged.

We wish to further supplement our letter of July 20, 1981 with the
following additional items:

1. Statutory authority:

Section 373.223 and 373.226, Fla. Stat., provide
the legislative framework for the proposed policy
statement. These provisions establish the permit
criteria for new and existing consumptive uses.
They do not eliminate the "right of use" held by
property owners prior to the adoption of the
Florida Water Resources Act of 1972. They merely
limit and regulate that "right of use" by imposing
the permit criteria.

2. Anticipated effects:

The proposed policy is merely a restatement of
existing law. As a result, we foresee no
consequences flowing from its adoption.

3. Economic impact:
*
Since the proposed policy provision is
descriptive of current law, we are aware
of no economic impacts which will flow
from its adoption.

We hope that you will find these additional comments helpful and
regret that they were not included in our earlier letter.

Sincerely,



L. M. Blain
