eaibility of Water Supply System Interconn ctlon Withit
'Attached is a conceptual plan for ator system interconnect within the tri-
Scounty region of Hillsborough, Pasco ad Pinellas Counties. Actording to
studies conducted by private consultants. StifM staff and local planning
agencle, there Is plenty of rater available to this regio if properly imn-
aged. tWter shortage have bee or will be In the Indlte future a result
of Inadequate facilities nd transport mechanism to the are of water demand.
S Inteurcogctlon of all water supply system will maximize the use of existing
sources and create the potntal of serving addltloml customers along the
major.tr mIatsson mains.
As mentloned. this is only a conceptual" view of interconnect based solely on ,
benefiting water anagment functions. Item that would actually determine the
feasibility of interconnect. such as cost effectiveness, energy use, facility
S cepatibilty. watar (source) coapatibility, hydologic and envlroiental 1*-
: pacts and lang-tem system reliability have not been considered. These Items
and the final determination of the actual location of the Intercomtst would '.
best be evaluated, y the anglamers Iavolved with, te Individual wat r; systms
and the WClISA. .i ,, *
District staff should continue to assist In the ploientatl on of this proregr
through Investiatfon of ntertie alternatives. This can be accomplished by -.
. establishing a District mnagment philosophy based on our understanding of
current water system needs and sources. Th District should continue to look
at all long-tro management tools Interco tion s oi nly one such method.
The District's part In maxallzig the use of our existing water system in the
Stri-county area can be smarlzed as belmo. This Is a preliminary look at the
feasbllity of intrconnection and further Investgatlions should beto de.
1. The District should strongly encourage aIterconnection of
water supply system where shown to be a good manageaat
Stool and cost-effective,
2. :the District supports KChISA efforts is providing service
and Interties to Its mowbr governments plus other water
Si*systems within the tri-county region.
3. Tie District could support the ICRiSA in providing service to
SOther mmilclpalities throM the peritttng system. There
i re "amy Indepd ent water supply systems that could benefit
Sfrom t nterc nnection with a reliable source aid preclude
the developIet of aiergency situations.
