1. APPROVAL OF THE MINUTES OF THE
COMMITTEE MEETING OF AUGUST 25. 1993
-- 2. REQUEST TO ENCUMBER FUNDS TO REFINE THE POSITION OF THE SALT
WATER INTERFACE IN THE EASTERN TAMPA BAY WATER USE CAUTION
The Ambient Ground-Water Quality Monitoring Program (AGWQMP) is currently
investigating apparent anomalies in the original delineation of the salt water interface
within a critical area of the Eastern Tampa Bay Water Use Caution Area (ETBWUCA).
This investigation requires discrete water samples plus a full suite of geophysical logs
be obtained from a select group of privately owned wells to determine if this anomaly
is the result of faulty well construction, deteriorated well casing or a locally
heterogeneous aquifer system.
The District transferred $15,000 from the Reserves for Contingency in March 1993, to
be disbursed to property owners in exchange for their efforts to remove their
submerged pumps and thus allow staff access to the borehole for sampling and logging.
Furthermore, paying property owners for this service, indemnifies the District from any
liability associated with pump removal and reinstallation. A similar approach was
successfully employed by the District as part of the agricultural metering program.
Of the $15,000 earmarked for this project, $10,200 remains to be encumbered into
FY 94 for contracts with property owners associated with the remaining wells in the
ETBWUCA targeted for sampling and geophysical logging.
Encumber $10,200 for reimbursement to well owners for pump removal and installation
