Basin Water Management Plans
Mr. Tatum advised that Board members will be receiving in the mail within the
next week updated information relating to the Five-Year Capital Budget. At the
April meetings, the staff willbe requesting guidance and direction regarding levels
of funding for Basin projects to be included in the individual Capital Budgets for
.-- each Basin and input on the project-scopes and time-frames as currently defined.
Mr. Tatum pointed out the correlation between the Capital Budget and the Basin
Water Management Plans and noted that each Board has appointed a liaison member
to work with the planning staff to formulate goals and objectives and identify
project priorities for a fiveyear period. All the Basin plans can then be
incorporated into the overall five-year project plan for the District and the
five-year Capital Budget.

District-Wide Computer Needs
The Governing Board authorized the staff in January to advertise for a consultant
to assist in determining requirements to update the District's computer system.
The firm of R. J. Kelly and Associates has been retained to develop a proposal
for consideration by the Board and hopefully can be implemented in the Five-
Year Capital Budget.
The staff is currently reviewing programs included under the cooperative program
with the U. S. Geological Survey (USGS). It is anticipated that this review
will enable all Boards to clearly identify problems and results from the various
programs under the USGS contract.
In closing, Mr. Tatum thanked the Basin Board members for attending, and
opened the meeting for discussion.
Mr. Craig expressed his support for expansion of the District's computer
system and encouraged long-range water management planning.
In reply to Mrs. Parsons' inquiry, Mr. Tatum explained the recent Bill passed
