CONFLICT RESOLUTION: NEGOTIATING RESOURCE MANAGEMENT ISSUES

Hon. Robert "Bob" Clark, Chairman, South Florida Water Management District

PANEL CHARGE

In an era when water resource decision-making has become increasingly laden with conflict due to the increased sophis-
tication of interest group politics, new approaches to managing environmental disputes regarding policy priorities, allocation
of fixed resources, and environmental quality standards have begun to emerge.

Facing seemingly intractable institutional problems, natural resource managers have begun to look with renewed in-
terest at the art of negotiation and the promise that the use of such techniques might hold. More than a process to balance
competing objectives, advances in negotiating techniques appear to be opening up new frontiers and providing opportunities
for highly creative and innovative solutions to resource management problems.

THE ROLE OF THE WATER MANAGEMENT DISTRICTS

The Honorable Robert Martinez, Mayor, City of Tampa, and Former Vice Chairman, Southwest Florida Water Manage-

Victoria J. Tschinkel, Secretary, Florida Department of Environmental Regulation


PANEL CHARGE

The issue of growth management has received considerable attention in the last few years due to the State's continued
and rapid increase in population. Growth management is a complex issue involving a multitude of components and several
levels of government. In 1981, numerous areas of Florida experienced severe drought and the resulting water shortages served
to focus attention on the water resource and water supply implications of our increasing population.

The Florida Department of Environmental Regulation and the five water management districts are charged with pro-
tecting and regulating the State's water resources. Local governments are charged with regulating land uses. Yet, land use and
water use are inextricably linked. Further, impacts of growth on the land and water resources may not be confined to local
government boundaries.

Chapter 380 of the Florida Statutes requires water management district participation in the Development of Regional
Impact process. This participation is limited to providing permitting information and a report on issues within their jurisdic-
tion.

Should the role of the water management district be modified or expanded?

Resource use and/or management conflicts sometimes arise between local governments and water management districts.
For example, the continuing development of floodplains results in excessive drainage to prevent flooding, and thereby re-
ducing the water storage capabilities of those lands.

Should water management districts be specifically authorized to regulate land use within floodplains?

Wetlands serve vital functions in the hydrologic cycle and ecological systems. Major emphasis has been placed on the
ecological benefits and water quality enhancement capabilities of wetlands. Little attention, however, has been directed to
the quantity of water necessary for the maintenance of viable wetlands.

Should more effort be made toward integrating and coordinating the existing wetlands regulations under the jurisdic-
tion of the Department of Environmental Regulation and the surface water management programs of the districts?

The water management districts are developing ground-water basin resource availability inventories as required by the
Legislature in 1982. It was the intent of the Legislature that limitations in available supplies be reflected in future growth and
development planning at the local level.

Is additional authority necessary for water management districts to ensure that the legislative intent is realized?

Local governments are having to respond to flooding problems as a result of development in flood-prone areas.

How best can water management districts assist local governments?
