conditions, rainfall, interties, and other pertinent information relative to .
this application. He said forty-four objections were received. A meeting m
between both District and PCWS staffs and objectors was held February 9, 1982.
The objectors expressed concern regarding lowered lake levels, water levels '
in domestic wells, and high iron concentrations. Mr. Wiley said some domestic
wells will be affected by well field pumpage; however, Pinellas County
Water System has instituted a program investigating damaged wells within one-half
mile of a production well. He then reviewed the conditions of the permit and
pointed out that Condition 10(e) was added to the proposed permit to ensure that
if the weekly elevation (non-cumulative) dropped below the regulatory levels
as a recurring event, the District may require the permitted to investigate
why it is occurring and any action taken to alleviate the problem and to report
to the District. The staff recommended approval of the application with the
recommended conditions. Mr. Finney, representing PCWS, reviewed the various
interties of the water system. He also discussed the technical problems of
interconnections and chemical reactions of interconnecting incompatible water
qualities. (Mr. Stubbs entered the meeting at this time.) Mr. Blain recommended
including an additional "Finding of Fact" in the order, stating, "It is essential
to the public health, safety and welfare of the public supply system to be
intertied with other public supply systems so that potable water can be borrowed,
loaned, bought, sold or otherwise exchanged between systems in times of shortages
or other emergencies. Proper planning and early design can reduce or eliminate
many practical, financial and technical difficulties. Coordination between
systems to ensure compatible quality and pressure is essential." He recommended
the paragraph be inserted as number "8" and the following paragraphs renumbered.
He also recommended an additional permit condition requiring Pinellas County
to report back to the District within a year regarding the potentials for
further interties. The Board concurred with Counsel's recommendations.
At this time Mr. Kimbrough moved, seconded by Mr. Lambert, to approve
insertion of the additional "Finding of Fact" into the order as recommended.
Motion carried unanimously. Mr. Blain then addressed Condition 13, which
concerns water conservation practices. He recommended deletion of the
last sentence of paragraph 13 which reads, "At such time as the Governing Board
adopts specific conservation criteria through public hearing for the Permittee's
water use classification, this Permit will be subject to such criteria upon notice
and after a reasonable period for compliance." He said this requirement is
already being addressed in Pinellas County's water conservation program.
Following discussion, Mr. Stubbs moved, seconded by Mr. Longino, to delete the
last sentence of Condition 13 as recommended by counsel. The motion carried,
with Messrs. Crane, Longino, Stubbs, Campbell, Stephens and Updike voting in favor,
and Messrs. Kimbrough and Lambert against. Following further discussion and
an opportunity for all present to be heard, Mr. Stephens moved, seconded by
Mr. Lambert, to approve Order No. 82-8 as amended, granting Consumptive Use
Permit No. 202673 as amended. Motion carried unanimously.

CUP Application No. 204857 Standard Sand and Silica Co.
Mr. Courser presented CUP Application No. 204857, Standard Sand and Silica Co.,
a modification to add a lawn irrigation well and to increase the average annual
withdrawal from 3,968,000 gallons per day (gpd) to 4,105,000 gpd, with the
maximum withdrawal of 10,513,000 remaining the same. One objection was received.
