Quarterly Water Resources Meeting
August 27, 1975

Brief Summary



Constitutional Referendum

It was decided th no public fun should be spent on
the referendum. However the D s could use staff
members to administer and participate in ah educational
program. Also, Board members could help by speaking before
groups, etc. The Governor's office will provide leadership
for the program.
A corporation is to be formed to coordinate the program.
The corporation wil e financed by private citizens and
companies with the board composed of personnel whose names
are to be submitted by the Districts before September 5.
The corporation should be coordinated by the Governor's
office or by the Department of Environmental Regulation.
A packet is to be prepared by the Department containing
material to be used by the Districts for the educational
program.
The program is to begin before the holidays.

Water Use Plan

The Districts are to accelerate work on the State Water
Use Plan in order to submit the Districts' porti-nn to +tF
ntpartment by 1978. The submitted plan should be a viable
plan that will probably be updated every year. It is
understood that the two older districts have much more
basic data than the new districts.

Water Resources Development Account

The conference is to be held in January or February
of 1976.

Budget Instructions
hp Districts are to break down their budget bv
components and give a narrative explanation of the components.
The budgets are to be submitted to the Department by
September 22, to be incorporated into the Department's
budget by October 8, 1975.
The General Revenue funds will be released on a quarterly
basis by a letter from the Secretary to the Department of
Administration and does not have to go to the Governor and
Cabinet. The Department will rush any request through as
fast as possible.

Newsletter
The Districts are to have their information in to the
Department by the 15th of each month and the newsletter will
be published on the 1st of the month.
Publication Policy
The Bureau of Water Resources Management has no publication
money for Fiscal Year 1975. However, the Bureau of Geology
can publish studies and investigations with statewide sig-
nificance. The Bureau of Geology reserves the right to reject
or modify any material submitted. There are usually 1,000
copies published and distributed to libraries and sent to
agencies, etc., upon request.
General

The Environmental Districts and Water Management Districts
should have the same boundaries; however, population dis-
tribution presents problems. The intentionof the Department
is to coordinate Dermitting so there are not i-iferent ofrices
to be contacted for different permits. Any need for dual
permitting needs to be i dent1 le.
The Districts will probably be given responsibility over
wells with the Department commenting on water quality.
The Department is.to compare the Southwest Florida Water
Management District's and the Central and Southern Florida
Flood Control District's rules and to form a conference com-
mittee to compare the rules.
It was reported that rainfall records are a weak data
spot. Surplus early warning system radar can be modified
for this use. More information is to be gathered on this.
The Central and Southern Florida Flood ontrnl Wistrict
S an 'the Southwest Florida Water Management Distit'-'P- o
Sresent a show, to indicate policies and philosoDhies on
the referendum at the next meeting.
