Regional water control

faces another threat
St. Petersburgl Tieon Staff Writer / /
CLEARWATER A dispute over regional control of a
wellfield in Pasco County went unresolved Wednesday
when the two sides disagreed on technical parts of a con-
tract transferring control of the wellfield.
Endangered is the regional concept of water distribu-
tion, seen by the Legislature as the solution to intercounty
water wars.
The Wet Coa Re nn. W r S
comprising Pasco, Pinellas, and Hillsborough counties and
the cities of Tampa and St. Petersburg, is trying to gain
control of the Cypress Creek wellfield in central Pasco. But
its efforts thus far have been stymied by disagreements be-
tween Pasco and Pinellas.
On Wednesday, the authority by a 3-2 vote accepted a
contract transferring Pasco County's interest in the Cy-
press Creek wellfield to the authority. But Pasco's repre-
sentative to the authority voted against the contract, call-
ing one provision unacceptable to the Pasco County Com-
Pinellas County's representative also voted against the
contract, protesting a reverter clause that could endanger
Pinellas' multimillion-dollar investment in the wellfield.
Pasco or Pinellas ultimately could scuttle the wellfield
-transfer if an acceptable contract is not obtained.
SUnder agreements with Pinellas County and the City of
,St. Petersburg, the authority now operates the wellfield.
