STATE OF FLORIDA

OFFICE OF GOVERNOR REUBIN O'D. ASKEW



February 9, 1978



Honorable President and
Members of the Senate

Honorable Speaker and
Members of the House
of Representatives

Honored Members:

It is my pleasure to submit Florida's State Comprehensive
Plan for your consideration and action.

This document sets the basic guidelines that will help
us to protect and enhance Florida's precious human and natural
resources and maintain our very special quality of life.

This Plan is a significant step in the planning process
envisioned by the State Comprehensive Planning Act of 1972.
Based upon the best available technical information for policy
recommendations, it will be a valuable tool as we seek to guide
Florida's future growth and prosperity.

In developing the process to carry out the responsibili-
ties mandated by the State Comprehensive Planning Act, the goal
was to involve as many participants as possible in the compila-
tion rather than to present a document which would represent
only my concerns. Advice and assistance was sought from
recognized authorities in State agencies, regional planning
organizations and policy advisory boards. Cities, counties
and various interested groups throughout the State reviewed
the proposed plan to provide their perspective. Comments were
also received from the general public through a series of public
meetings involving all areas of the State.

Through this process, the goals, policies and objectives
of this proposed plan were compiled. Additionally, my executive
directions to State agencies have been included for your in-
formation. The final product is a balanced document, which
reflects to the extent possible the wide range of issues
facing the people and the various agencies and levels of
their government.

This Plan is a long-range strategy for the State. Its
full implementation will be dependent on substantive changes
in the law by the Legislature and on the availability and
allocation of resources. I look forward to having the benefit
of your views as we continue to work toward its adoption.

As Governor of Florida and as the State's Chief Planning
Officer, I hereby:

(1) accept the goals, objectives, and policies
presented in the Florida State Comprehensive Plan,
consistent with the constitutions and laws of the
United States and the State of Florida; and

(2) resolve, subject to the actions of the Florida
Legislature, that the Florida State Co prehensive
Plan as presented herein shall become effective
State policy.

From 1350 until very recently, water resource development in Florida
has been heavily characterized by widespread drainage, flood control and
navigation projects. About 1970 it became evident that these large-scale
water resource projects, should be managed comprehensively to achieve much
broader objectives that include protection and enhancement of water quality,
maximum conservation, of water, protection of fish and wildlife, and other
public values. The positive and negative consequences of past water re-
source management activities clearly point to the need for an integrated
approach to water management. Florida's economy, more than that of most
other states, depends directly on natural resources and environmental quality.

The Water policy materials were developed with the assistance of an
ad hoc technical advisory committee, an interagency work group, and a
40-member policy advisory council. The draft element work papers were re-
viewed in statewide public meetings held in September 1977.

The Water Section of the State Comprehensive Plan provides for
management strategy that will enable the state to manage its natural
resources wisely and thereby provide for the long-term economic and
environmental health of the state's residents and visitors. The Section
identifies the key water management relationships governing the health and
productivity of the natural resource base and formulates. policies that will
provide maximum long-term benefits by achieving optimum water quality,
water conservation and wise use, enhanced fish and wildlife populations,
soil fertility, and both natural and agricultural productivity, and other
vital social values. In this regard, the Section provides guidance for
public and private water-resource development; a basis for executive and
legislative decision-making at all levels of government; a broad framework
that local, state, and federal agencies can use in land use and water plan-
ning and management; the policy basis for the Florida Water Plan, which
will consist of the Water Use Plan and Water Quality Plan; a basis for
S developing needed legislation; and a basis for the systematic continuation
of research, analysis, and problem solving for water management problems
in Florida.

OVERALL GOAL WATER MANAGEMENT

Manage water and related resources to achieve maximum
economic and environmental welfare for all the state's
citizens on a long-term basis.

OBJECTIVE A: Watershed Management L

Through management, provide for reasonable beneficial
uses while maintaining, and where appropriate, reestablish-
ing hydrologic relationships which optimize the percolation
and recharge of groundwater, the productivity of agricultural
and natural plant communities, the protection and enhancement
of soil fertility, prevention of erosion, maintenance of
optimum soil moisture and protection of water quality and
other public values.

POLICIES

1. In substantially unaltered watersheds, maintain run-
off/infiltration and other hydrologic relationships (soil
profile, rate of soil erosion or impoverishments, etc.) to
achieve as nearly as practical the natural hydrologic
conditions and to provide for a balance of urban, agricultural,
and natural systems recognizing that natural productivity is
optimized under unaltered conditions.

XECUTIE DIRECTION AGENCY RULE 'HE DER IN. CONJUNCTION
WITH THE WMD's Alf APPROPRIATE ACENCZES SdOULD DEVELOP BASIN
SPECIFIC DESIGO CRITERIA TO PROTECT THE NATURAL D ET' TIO AND
RETESTIZO OF SURFACE WATER. BASED ON THE CRITERIA DEVELOPED,
APPROPRIATE RULES SHOULD BE DEVELOPED.


2. 'In disrupted watersheds, restructure runoff-infiltration
and other hydrologic relationships to minimize the effects of-
physical changes in slope profile; and by the use of best manage-
ment techniques, minimize the rate of soil erosion or soil
impoverishment or other disruptions to the nutrient cycle; and
to otherwise provide for a more balanced blend of urban,
agricultural, and natural systems recognizing that natural
productivity is optimized under unaltered conditions.








3. Use and encourage use of best management practices to
control runoff, increase water quality and groundwater recharge,
enhance soil fertility, and minimize erosion or other adverse
effects, while recognizing the constraints caused by existing
development.

34. Insure that water management projects are designed
and operated to maintain and enhance natural systems as well as
the systems of man.

EXECUTIVE DtIREC"ITO THE DERI, MD's AND DOA SHOULD
ICLUDE WATER REQUIRET.ENTS FOR WIAT4RA SYSTEMS IN ALL APPLICABLE
PLANS AND PROGRAMS.


35. Utilize local water resources to the greatest degree
that is economically and environmentally feasible before con-
sidering interdistrict, interbasin, and other large scale
transfer of water. Subject to reasonable regulation, proposals
for the transfer of water should be reviewed and evaluated by
appropriate state, regional and local agencies having juris-
diction. The determination process, as required by law, should
include at least the following minimum criteria to determine whether
or not the proposed transfer is in the overall public interest.

(A) A comprehensive water conservation, reuse, and
management program should be initiated in the area of need.
Present water shortages result mostly from non-essential
uses of water during dry season and drought conditions.
Local governments should take effective steps to increase
the use of native and other water-conserving vegetation
and to curtail non-essential uses during the dry season
and drought. Local governments and water utilities in
areas of water shortages should undertake systematic
water conservation and reuse programs including local
codes and ordinances which require the use of water saving
fixtures, equipment and systems. Such steps should include
but not be limited to: (1) system leakage tolerances
should be incorporated and monitored, (2) agricultural
irrigation practices, (3) industrial water uses, (4) re-
trofitting of water saving devices, and (5) plumbing
regulations which conserve water manually. Inverted or
amended rate structures should be applied during periods
of water shortages and should be structured to result in
water conservation. Local land use plans, pursuant to
the Local Government Comprehensive Planning Act, should
reflect present and future needs for water, the value
of wetlands, recharge areas, optimum groundwater levels,
optimum retention capability in drainage systems, and
other applicable methods to increase water supplies and
management.

(B) A complete analysis of environmental impacts, the
present and future water needs of potential supplying
areas, and other impacts of water transfer should be con-
ducted and environmental and economic costs estimated
for both the supply and receiving areas.

(C) A comprehensive investigation should determine all
costs and benefits for both the supply and receiving areas.
Analysis should determine the costs of construction and operation
of the transfer facilities and all environmental and other costs.

(0) Once all costs and benefits have been quantified to
the greatest practical degree, equitable financing of transfers
should be developed to insure that environmental and other costs
are fully recognized and equitably financed.

(E) Evaluation and regulatory procedures should avoid
the use of artificial boundary or quantity restraints but rather,
should evaluate each case on the basis of its effect on water
resources and the overall public interest. Analysis should
include a comparison of long-term positive and negative economic
and environmental impacts of water importation for both the
supplying and the receiving areas, increased growth and increased
cos s of vital public services as a result of increased growth
wi impacts associated with urban sprawl, infrastructure reloca-
tion and expansion and the imposition of growth management con-
derations. Deliberations should fully incorporate the positions
