RE: DER QUARTERLY MEETING AGENDA
This is to provide you further explanation of the items suggested by Buddy.
,#1. Too many meetings are being called. There needs to be better coordination
to cause fewer people to have to gosuch as scheduling meetings pertaining to
related subjects closer but without overlapping. Notices of other meetings by
other departments need to be more clearly described so that water management
districts can more fully understand specifics to be discussed.
#2. Primarily relates to Littlejohn response to James O'Neal, Hernando County
where he notifies DRF, by copy of letter to O'Neal, to send all information and
notices of hearings regarding CUP's in Hernando to O'Neal. Buddy Blain feels this
is inappropriate. DER should either confer or refer inquiries to water management
#3. Buddy Blain suggests we need to discuss matters such as:
b. Changes to Chapter 373
c. Changes to Administrative Procedures
d. Other legislation affecting WMD's
e. Future legislation
Important to throw these things on the table; otherwise, DER could say they were
never discussed because we were given opportunity to put on agenda and didn't.
Also, this is good time to discuss DER's "Report to 1977 Legislature."
#4. Regarding standardization--
a. Procedural matters
b. Artificial recharge
c. Well construction
d. Districts' rules and orders.
#5. Apparently, SOFWMD did not request their recently delegated authority
pertaining to water quality, i. e., no telling who's going to be delegated what

Memorandum to D. R. Feaster 2 May 20, 1977
Other matters you might consider:
1. DER's permit requirements toward water management districts.
2. (facetiously) Florida Wildlife Federation assistance to WMD's.
3. "Water Management District Activities," and how this DER newsletter
can be made more effective vehicle for communications among all
water management districts and DER.
Feel free to add or delete as you see fit. Buddy suggests if there's any doubt on
any item, its better to go ahead and get it on the agenda because it can always
be scratched at the last minute.
