MEMORANDUM

TO: DERRILL S. McATEER, Chairman
DONALD R. FEASTER, Executive Director

FROM: WILLIAM T. ALLEE, Executive AssistanfA

RE: Quarterly Meeting Agenda Items

This will provide some background on the discussion items for the
meeting Friday morning at 9:00 a.m.

1. Delegation of Authority by DER This is listed as a result of
Jake's Nov. 26 letter (copy attached) regarding delegation. Thought
he might want to clarify for all present.

2. Task Force Recommendation For discussion purposes I have xeroxed
from the report the four primary water resources recommendations
(copy attached). Also, for comparison with recommendation two I
have included a copy of the resolution on quantity/quality that was
generally agreed to at the last quarterly meeting.

3. WRC Title III Funding Bill McCartney asked that this item be
included to seek clarification from.Jake as to how the available
funds will generally be distributed. A copy of our request is
attached for your information.

4. Renumbering of Rules Buddy submitted this item to get an idea of
the other districts' schedules for implementation of the common
numbering system. You will recall our intent is to hold a hearing
at the March Governing Board meeting for this purpose.

5. Model Rules of Procedure This refers to a set of rules being
developed by the Attorney General's Office that the districts
have been requested to review. Buddy wants to get discussion and,
hopefully, a consensus of opinion on several issues of concern.

6. Legislative Package This will follow-up previous discussions on
proposed changes to Chapter 373. Buddy and Fred will have materials
available for group consideration in various categories.

7. Next quarterly meeting I think it's due in South Florida, but I
understand that neither Bob Clark nor Jack Maloy will be here to respond.

Let me know if you have any questions.

TITLE III
Title: Feasibility of Recharge/Recovery at Lake Manatee


Description:


Schedule:


Manatee County will soon require additional potable water
to meet Its ever thcreasing demands. They currently get
their supply from the Manatee River and its tributaries.
One method that could be used to meet the demand is to
recharge surface water into the, ground water system during
the wet season and withdraw It when needed in the dry season.
This project will determine the feasibility both physically
and economically of such a system for use by the County.


June '80 August '80


Construct test and monitor wells. Conduct pumping tests
to determine aquifer'coefficients and water quality of the
groundwater system in the area of Lake Manatee.


Sub-Total

$100,000


SWHFMD

$ 50,000


August '80 January '81


On the basis of the above tests, design and construct the
appropriate interconnection.from the test well to the Manatee
County Utility System Treatment Plant at Lake Manatee (This
project will proceed only after Manatee County has requested
and agreed to it).
Sub-Total SWFME


$100,000


$ 50,000


January '81 June '83


Run two cycles of recharge and recovery through the system
to prove its feasibility. Analyze the results and recommend
the necessary steps to implement a fully operational facility.

I. Project Description; The District's Initial effort in the agricultural
Flowmeter Program has successfully indicated that
the watering of-agricultural water use,.n:a select
basis is a viable munes for verify tyingrrigation
application-guidelines-for a.ariety of crops.
Thus, aiding in evaluating agricultural water use
requests3for withdrawals and more importantly, in
provid4ag an Inventory of-total agricultural water
use District-wide.
Through our cooperative prograwwith the Institute
of Food and Agricultural Sciences we are obtaining
water use requirements fr a variety pf crops;
Therefore, by utilizing this metering program, with
knowledge of crop irrigationrequirments, we would
be able to recommend efficient irrigation practices
that could result in the conservaign of water
resources.

Mr. Donald R. Feaster e

Management District

Dear Mr. Feaster:

As you know, the Water Resources Council, through the Water
Resources Planning Act (PL 89-80), each year provides Title
III planning funds to states to encourage the conservation,
development and utilizatie n or water-related land resources
on a combrahensive basis. I the past these grants have
been $50,000 to $60,000 per year for our state and $3 to $4
million nationwide, but this year there have been appro-
priated for FY 1980 $20 million for grants to states. This
represents an approximate sevenfold increase in the amount
previously made available.

The new funds would be available for two specific types of
project categories:

(a) for development, implementation and modification
of water management programs; and

(b) for establishing and implementing water conser-
vation technical assistance programs.

The Water Resources Council has advised that Florida funding
for these categories is estimated to be $371,800 for the
current fiscal year.

Since these funds can be used as pass-through funds to water
management districts and/or to other local jurisdictions,
the final distribution or allocation is still a matter of
future decision.

Re: Delegation of Well Construction
Rule Making

Dear Don:
As of late a couple of the Districts have questioned me
about the possibility of additional authority. In each
instance I've advised the District that I do not intend
to delegate additional authority to any District until
the Governor gives me some directive on the role and
relationship of the Departaent and the Districts. While
I would like an early response from the Governor, I don't
expect any directive until the Resource Management Task
Force makes its recommendations.
Sincerely,
