Stated Obiectives by Catecorv

in the

State Water Use Plan


1. Protection of the Water Suooly

Through 1995, surface water supplies will continue to be

managed to promote conservation, preserve natural

resources, and ensure that available quantities are used

for reasonable-beneficial uses that do not interfere which

existing legal uses and are consistent with the public

interest.

Through 1995, ground water supplies will continue to be

managed to promote conservation, preserve natural

resources, and ensure that available quantities are used

for reasonable-beneficial uses which do not interfere with

Existing legal uses and are consistent with the public

interest.

Promote the development of technology which by the year

2005 helps reduce the cost of supplying potable water via

innovative techniques such as reverse osmosis.

In the year 1995 water conservation efforts will have

resulted in increased efficiency in water used and

necessary for irrigation, mining, power development, and

domestic, municipal, and industrial uses.

2. Protection of Water Resources

In 1995, the quality of Florida's surface waters will be as

good or better than it is in 1985.

In 1995 the quality of Florida's ground water will be as

good or better than it is in 1985.

By 1989 Florida's educational system will have integrated

water resource education programs into its curriculum to

stress the importance of environmental protection, water

resource conservation and management, and the preservation

of natural systems.


3. Protection of Natural Systems

Maintain natural water systems so they continue to function

as well as they do now.


4. Protection of Castal Resources

By 1995, Florida's estuarine systems will comply with water

quality standards and there will be a net increase in

functioning estuarine habitat.


5. Protection of Natural yst jm

By 1995, the state will have begun to restore and

subsequently preserve degraded natural systems on an

approved restoration priority list.


By 2005, the state will be managing modified natural

systems so that they function more naturally than they do

today.

Regulatory programs will ensure that by 1995 there will be

a 5% net increase in functioning wetland systems.


By the year 2000 the Everglades will look and function more

as it did in 1900 than when the Save Our Everglades was

started in August 1983.

6. Environmental Protection

By 1990 the state will have identified the types of

environmentally sensitive land and water resources which

cannot be restored and are therefore inappropriate for
mining.

Through 1995 the state will continue to ensure that mining

complies with regulations for protecting water quality and
quantity.

7. Transportation to Aid GroWth Management

In 1995, the water quality in Florida's port facilities
will be as good or better than in 1985.

In 1995, the water quality in coastal high-hazard areas or

in identified environmentally sensitive areas such as

wetlands, floodways, or productive marine areas will be as
good or better than in 1985.

a. Agricultural Industry

In 1995, water conservation efforts will have resulted in

more efficient use of water for agricultural irrigation.

In 1995, soil conservation will have resulted in reductions

in the sediment load in Florida's surface waters caused by
agriculture.
