Subject: Permit Modification, Letter
Project Name: Hillsborough River Reservoir and the Morris
Br e Wellfield
Permit No.: A
County: Hillsborough


Reference:


Chapter 40D-2, Florida Administrative Code, (F.A.C.)
Chapter 40D-2.331(2)(b), F.A.C.


Dear Mrs. Guillory:

We have received your application for letter modification of the
referenced Water Use Permit (WUP) and are pleased to notify you that the
modification is authorized based on the following criteria and conditions:

1. The second paragraph of Condition 19.E.2. of WUP No. 202062.02 is
hereby revised to read as follows (the first paragraph has not been
revised):

On an annual basis, augmentation from the TBC to the reservoir will
not begin until the water level in.the reservoir recedes to 21.0
feet NGVD, unless augmentation is required by Condition 19.E.I. for
the purpose of mitigation of increased reservoir withdrawals.
Augmentation from the TBC shall cease when the water level in the
reservoir is at 22.0 feet NGVD, unless augmentation is required by
Condition 19.E.1. for the purpose of mitigation of increased
reservoir withdrawals.

2. As part of the Hydro-biological Monitoring Report required by
Condition 20.A.7. of WUP No. 202062.02, due February 15, 1995, the
Permittee shall include an analysis of the hydro-biological effects
to the TBC, McKay Bay and Hillsborough River caused by the changes
to the reservoir augmentation schedule allowed under this current
modification. The analysis shall include a review of the continued
necessity of augmentation for mitigation purposes required by
Condition 19.E.1.

3. The reference to Condition 20.A.3. in Condition 19.E.1. of WUP No.
202062.02 is hereby corrected to reference Condition 20.A.7. of the
same permit.

4. This modification is authorized contingent upon the District's
review of the potential hydro-biological effects caused by the
revised augmentation schedule, which is to be evaluated pursuant to
Item 2 above, and is subject to further modification by the District
based upon the District's findings.
S/

& .^

5. The revised schedule for augmentation of the Hillsborough River from the
TBC authorized by this letter modification is solely an interim measure to
allow improvement of the storage capabilities of the Reservoir. The final
optimal withdrawal/augmentation schedule for the Hillsborough River will
be determined under the hydro-biological monitoring plan required by
Condition 20.A.7., which will take precedence over the augmentation
schedule allowed under this current modification.

All other standard and special conditions attached to WUP No. 202062.02 and other
NTB WUCA conditions continue to apply to the modified permit (WUP No. 202062.03).

If the District may be of further assistance, please contact Mario A. Cabana,
P.G., at thA Tampa Permitting Department at (813) 985-7481, extension 2014.

to act pursuant to Condition 2 of this permit. The recorded flow shall be
submitted in cubic feet per second (cfs).

2. SULPHUR SPRINGS
By January 1, 1991, the Permittee shall begin collection of the average daily
spring pool stage elevation and the average daily discharge from Sulphur Springs.
The monitor station shall be labelled District Identification No. 301. The
average daily values shall be calculated by an appropriate method, as approved by
the Director, Tampa Permitting Department. The stage elevation (referenced to
NGVD) and flow data shall be submitted to the District (on District forms) on or
before the fifteenth (15th) day of the following month. The recording frequency
may be modified by mutual agreement between the Director, Tampa Permitting
Department and the Permittee as necessary to ensure the protection of the
resource. However, nothing in this condition shall be construed to limit the
authority of the Board to act pursuant to Condition 2 of this permit. The
recorded flow shall be submitted in cubic feet per second (cfs).

D. STRUCTURE OPERATION COORDINATION PLAN
By June 30, 1991, the Permittee shall submit a Structure Operation Coordination
Plan to the Director, Tampa Permitting Department for approval. The Flood
Coordination Plan shall be a comprehensive but concise report on the operation of
the Tampa Reservoir Spillway and how it is operated in conjunction with the
District's Tampa By-Pass Canal system. The goal of the plan shall be to describe
the structure operations at the reservoir, and allow for optimal coordination
between the City and the District during periods of time where it is necessary to
operate the reservoir spillway structures and coordinate with the District
regarding operation of TBC structures. The plan shall emphasize the conservation
of the water resource, coordination between District and City operators, and
diversion of water into TBC which can later be pumped to the reservoir. The





'Permit No.: 202062.02
Page 16 of 25

Permittee shall coordinate with the District's Operations Department during the
development of the plan. This plan is required as a means to develop a full
management plan which maximizes the Hillsborough River Reservoir and Tampa Bypass
Canal system as a water supply source.

E. REGULATORY LIMITS

1. RESERVOIR AUGMENTATION AND WITHDRAWAL SCHEDULE DURING STUDY PERIOD
Because potential impacts could not be quantified at the time of permit
issuance, a net increase in river withdrawals will be allowed only in accordance
with Condition 20.A.3. During the term of the first study period, the City will
be required to adhere to the reservoir pumpage schedule specified in the table
below. On a daily basis, the Permittee shall compare the quantity pumped from
the reservoir and the "average monthly quantity limit" designated in the table
below. The Permittee shall also compare the recorded average daily flow rate at
the reservoir dam with the 25 cfs low flow limit.

If the average daily flow rate over the dam during any day is less than 25 cfs,
the Permittee shall calculate the quantity difference between the quantity pumped
from the reservoir and the "average monthly quantity limit." This calculation
shall be undertaken regardless of whether the quantities pumped during that
particular day are less than, or greater than the "average monthly quantity
limit." The difference shall be termed the "daily mitigation quantity", and
shall be a negative number for days where quantities pumped from the reservoir
were less than the "average monthly quantity limit" and a positive number for
days where quantities pumped from the reservoir were greater than the "average
monthly quantity limit". For days where the average daily flow rate over the dam
exceeds 25 cfs, the "daily mitigation quantity" shall be designated as zero, and
the Permittee shall be allowed to withdraw up to the permitted quantities from
the reservoir without later augmentation mitigation from TBC.

The Permittee shall record the "daily mitigation quantity" value daily and report
the values monthly, in a form acceptable to the District, by the fifteenth day of
the following month. These daily quantity differences shall be added
cumulatively for each day that average daily flows at the dam are less than 25
cfs. When no flow conditions exist at the dam, and water levels in the reservoir
recede to 22.0 feet NGVD, the Permittee shall pump water from the TBC to the
reservoir until the cumulative daily quantity differences that were pumped from
the reservoir, have been made up by TBC pumpage, or until water levels in the
reservoir have rebounded to the crest of the dam (i.e. 22.5 feet NGVD). If water
levels in the reservoir rebound to the crest of the dam before the cumulative
daily quantity difference has been made up by TBC pumpage, the quantity that was
not made up shall be recorded, and shall be carried over for augmentation during
the next no flow period for which water levels in the reservoir recede to 22.0
feet NGVD. This will allow for storage in the reservoir to be maintained, and
shall assist in minimizing the effects of decreases in storage on the occurrence
of low and no flow days.

The cumulative quantity of water that is required to be pumped from TBC shall be
designated in the pumpage reports to the District, and shall be termed the
"cumulative mitigation quantity". The "daily mitigation quantity" pumped from
the TBC, shall also be clearly stated on the pumpage report for the reservoir.

-If -such mitigation is not feasible during the construction of the permanent
pumping facility for the TBC, the Permittees shall submit a written request to
the Director, Tampa Permitting Department, within 60 days prior to initiation of
construction. The request shall detail the specific reasons why mitigation
during the construction period is not feasible, when construction of the





'Permit No.: 202062.02
Page 17 of 25

permanent facility is proposed to be completed, and when the mitigation pumpage
will resume again. The request will require written approval of the Director,
Tampa Permitting Department prior to discontinuance of mitigation pumpage from
TBC to the reservoir.

The Director of the Tampa Permitting Department may modify this limiting
condition or extend this condition to other periods of the study, based on the
results of hydro-biological monitoring for the TBC or the reservoir.

2. RESERVOIR SYSTEM PUMPING SCHEDULE
The Permittee shall minimize withdrawals from Sulphur Springs to the maximum
extent possible. TBC will be the first and primary augmentation source for the
reservoir. During the months of March through June, augmentation from Sulphur
Springs will not begin until water levels in the reservoir recede to 20.0 feet
NGVD. During the months of January through February, and July through December,
augmentation from Sulphur Springs will not begin until water levels in the
reservoir recede to 18.0 feet NGVD. If water levels recede to the aforementioned
levels, the Permittee will attempt to meet augmentation demands with the TBC
before initiating withdrawals from Sulphur Springs.

During the months of March through June, augmentation from TBC to the reservoir
will not begin until water levels in the reservoir recede to 21.0 feet NGVD,
unless augmentation is required by Condition 19.E.1. for the purpose of
mitigation of increased reservoir withdrawals. During the months of January
through February, and July through December, augmentation from TBC to the
reservoir will not begin until water levels in the reservoir recede to 19.0 feet
NGVD, unless augmentation is required by Condition 19.E.I. for the purpose of
mitigation of increased reservoir withdrawals.

3. MAXIMIZING HILLSBOROUGH RIVER WITHDRAWALS
The ability to maximize reservoir withdrawals may be limited in accordance with
Condition 19.E.1, 19.E.2., or Condition 20.B. However, within the limits imposed
by _Condition 19.E.I., 19.E.2., or Condition 20.B, withdrawals from the
.Hillsborough River Reservoir shall be maximized to the greatest extent possible,
while complying with the conditions of this permit, and shall be utilized before
the TBC, Morris Bridge Wellfield, or Sulphur Springs sources.

A. HYDRO-BIOLOGICAL MONITORING HILLSBOROUGH RIVER
The qualified consultants) shall be selected by the Permittee, and data
collection for the HBM program shall begin by October 1, 1991 and end September
30, 1994. District staff shall be provided copies of all proposals received in
response to the Permittee's request for proposals, and shall be provided the
opportunity to attend all oral presentations regarding the proposals. The
Director of the Tampa Permitting Department shall be provided written notice of
oral presentations at least one week in advance of such presentations. Through
all steps of the consultant selection process, the District will provide the
Permittee a non-binding recommendation of the consultants who propose to
undertake the project.

The final scope of work shall be written after discussion and negotiations with
the consultant. The final scope of work will at a minimum address the seven
items outlined below and where appropriate, changes to the seven items can be
made as a result of acquiring additional information not available at the time
the permit was issued. The District shall be provided the opportunity to
participate in the drafting of the final scope of work. Five copies of a final
scope of work shall be submitted to the Director of the Tampa Permitting
Department for approval, by no later than July 15, 1991.

The Study Area for the initial three year period of the permit shall extend from
above the reservoir dam to the vicinity of the Columbus Drive bridge, and shall
include Sulphur Springs. The scope of work and study area for the remainder of
the duration of the permit shall be revised according to recommendations
contained in the final report due February 15, 1995 (covering Water Years 1992 to
1994), subject to approval of the Director of the Tampa Permitting Department.

1. MONITORING SITE LOCATIONS
A total of six sampling stations shall be established. One station each shall be
located in the reservoir and Sulphur Springs. Four additional sites shall be

(I) nitrate/nitrite
(J) ammonia
(K) kjeldahl nitrogen
(L) Total Organic Carbon
(M) Biochemical Oxygen Demand
(N) color
(0) pH
(P) conductivity

Analysis of Chloride, Sulfate, and Total Dissolved Solids concentrations
shall also be undertaken for Sulphur Springs on a monthly basis. When
Sulphur Springs is pumped, water quality shall be collected on a weekly
basis.

Regular monthly sampling shall also include salinity/DO/temperature profiles
at the six stations identified in the approved scope of work, plus an
additional four stations in the river below the dam.

In addition to regular monthly sampling, salinity/DO/temperature profiles
shall also be conducted at the ten stations in the above paragraph shortly
after the beginning of a discharge event at the dam, following a no flow
period (to the extent that appropriate flow conditions exist). These
profiles shall be conducted on a schedule not to exceed four times per year,
and shall be used to determine the impact of flows immediately after a
rainfall/discharge event.

To the maximum extent possible, water quality sampling shall be performed
during the same tidal and time of day conditions each month. The sample
collection time and date shall be included with all data. Analyses shall be
performed according to procedures outlined in the current edition of
Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater by APHA-AWWA-
WPCF or Methods for Chemical Analyses of Water and Wastes by the USEPA.

b. Following the first year of water quality data collection, the District and
the Permittee will review all data collected, as required by the approved
final scope of work, as a basis to determine any justified change to the
sample frequency of water quality monitoring for the second year. If
applicable, a similar review will take place at the end of the second data
collection year for the third year of monitoring.

accomplished by boat tows with plankton nets, and juvenile fish surveys
shall be accomplished by using seines and trawls. Ichthyoplankton
surveys shall be conducted at four river sites located below the dam
(not including Sulphur Springs), while juvenile fish surveys shall be
collected at 5 river sites depending on site suitability. Site
locations can be the same as the water quality monitoring site
locations of section 2.a.. However, due to physical limitations with
sampling equipment, alternate sites may be necessary.

b. A one time shoreline habitat inventory, including aquatic macrophytes, of
the lower Hillsborough River shall be conducted during the first year of the
monitoring period.

c. Following the first year of biological data collection, the District and the
Permittee will review all data collected, as required by the approved final
scope of work, as a basis to determine any justified change to the sample
frequency of biological monitoring for the second year.

4. PREVIOUS STUDY REVIEW
The consultant shall review and summarize all previous biological, hydrologic,
and water quality studies of the reservoir, lower river, and Sulphur Springs.
This shall include a review of the District's SWIM library. The collected
information shall be used in the analysis as appropriate, and the findings of the
reports shall be summarized in the first interpretive report required by this
condition.

5. STORMWATER INPUT SURVEY
A survey of the stormwater inputs and associated treatment efficiencies shall be
conducted the first year to evaluate the potential impacts of direct watershed
discharge into the Hillsborough River.

-6. MONITORING PLAN GOALS
The goals of the plan shall be:
a. To determine hydrologic, water quality, and biological relationships in the
study area, and their relationship to discharge at the reservoir dam, and to
determine whether the proposed increase in withdrawals of 20 MGD will have





'Permit No.: 202062.02
Page 21 of 25

an unacceptable adverse impact on water quality, and fish and wildlife in
the lower Hillsborough River.

b. To determine the habitat functions of the lower Hillsborough River.

c. To determine the importance of Sulphur Springs discharge to water quality
and biology of the lower Hillsborough River, during all times of the year.

d. The construction of a mathematical hydrological model (not a water quality
model) of the reservoir that includes, but is not limited to terms for:
inflows into the reservoir, infiltration to the TBC, bank seepage gains and
losses, evaporation, changes in storage, and withdrawals from and
augmentation to the reservoir. This model shall allow the simulation of
dependable yields and downstream releases under various withdrawal and
augmentation scenarios. The model shall include the-TBC.

e. In relation to the items above, the ultimate goal of the study shall be to
determine an optimal withdrawal/augmentation management schedule for the
reservoir, TBC, and Sulphur Springs that minimizes downstream impacts, while
at the same time meeting water supply needs.

7. MONITORING AND REPORTING PERIODS
Joint review of all draft reports shall take place by the Authority, the City,
and the District. All reports shall be subject to District review and suggested
revisions. Five copies of all reports shall be submitted. The results of the
monitoring program shall be submitted to the District in a series of three
reports, plus end of year data reports for the purpose of defining future
monitoring requirements. However, depending on changes to the sampling program
after the first and second data collection years, it may be necessary for the
Director, Tampa Permitting Department, to modify the reporting schedule described
below.

By September 1 of each data collection year (excluding the third data collection
year), the Permittee shall submit all data collected to date, on hard copy and on
electronic media in a format meeting District specifications, to the Director,
Tampa Permitting Department. This data shall be reviewed in accordance with
Conditions 20.A.2.b. and 20.A.3.c. to determine the extent of future monitoring.
The data shall be reviewed by the Permittee and the District between September 1
and September 30 of each applicable year. By September 30, the District will
notify the Permittee of the future monitoring requirements, which are to be
implemented beginning October 1 of the same year.

A progress report shall be submitted by February 15, 1993. This report shall
include all raw data for the first year of the project on hard copy and essential
graphs and text with little or no interpretive discussion. The report shall
include a summary of data collected during the first study year and text
providing a description of monitoring progress.

A second report shall be submitted to the District by February 15, 1994. This
report shall serve as an interpretive report for the biological and first two
years of water quality data collection for the monitoring program, and shall
include: a review of previous data collection programs and biological and water
quality studies of the lower Hillsborough River, the shoreline habitat inventory
of the lower Hillsborough River, and an assessment of the habitat functions of
the lower river emphasizing the relationships of biological communities to
salinity and water quality variables affected by discharge from the reservoir or
Sulphur Springs. Accompanying the second report shall be the data collected in
the second year of the project on hard copy, and the complete set of data




Permit No.: 202062.02
-Page 22 of 25

collected for the first two years of the project provided on electronic media in
a format meeting District specifications. The second report shall be subject to
the District review, and require the approval of the Director of the Tampa
Permitting Department.

A third report shall be submitted to the District by February 15, 1995. This
shall be an interpretive report which includes the following: a final analysis
of the relationships of salinity and other water quality variables to discharge
from the reservoir and Sulphur Springs, the hydrologic model of the reservoir
system, and presentation and discussion of the optimal withdrawal/augmentation
management schedule for the reservoir system. This recommended schedule will be
used to determine the most appropriate withdrawal and augmentation schedule for
the reservoir, spring, and TBC, based on best available data.

Although the biological data were evaluated in detail in the second report, the
third report shall discuss discharge/water quality relationships and the optimal
reservoir management schedule as they pertain to biological communities in the
Hillsborough River and the Tampa Bypass Canal. The third report shall also
contain recommendations for continuation of the monitoring program or other
analyses relevant to designing or updating an optimal reservoir management
schedule for the reservoir system. Accompanying the third report shall be the
data collected in the third year of the monitoring program on hard copy and on
electronic media in a.format meeting District specifications, and the hydrologic
model for the reservoir system provided on electronic media.

The findings of the third report shall be subject to review by the District, and
the recommendations contained in the report shall require approval of the
Director of the Tampa Permitting Department. The approved
withdrawal/augmentation management schedule will replace the requirements of
Condition 19.E.1. ("reservoir augmentation and withdrawal schedule during study
period").

B. Impact Assessment
If at any time during the term of the permit the interpretive reports or District
staff's analysis indicates that unacceptable adverse impacts are occurring, or
are anticipated to occur, due to the increased withdrawals from the reservoir,
the City will be required to limit withdrawals from the reservoir to an
acceptable impact. However, nothing in this condition shall be construed to
limit the authority of the Board to act pursuant to Condition 2 of this permit.
If, based on the conclusions of the final interpretive report, additional
monitoring assessment is deemed necessary, additional monitoring will be required
by the District.

21. WATER CONSERVATION
The Permittee shall continue to develop, implement, and expand existing water
conservation programs to reduce demands on the water resources and increase efficiency
of water use. Within six (6) months of Permit issuance, the Permittee shall submit,
for approval by the Director of the Tampa Permitting Department, a modification of the
water conservation plan submitted on June 1, 1990, that has the current water demand
figures (submitted June 1, 1990) incorporated into the plan in the appropriate areas.
This modified plan, when approved, shall be implemented in conjunction with existing
programs. The Permittee shall submit three copies of this modified water conservation
plan. At the Permittee's option, one plan can be submitted to cover this permit and
WUP No. -206675.01, to meet the revised plan requirements above and to meet the
requirements of Conditions 21.A. and 21.B. The two following requirements must be
met:




'Permit No.: 202062.02
S-Page 23 of 25

A. The Permittee shall carry out the provisions of its District-approved Water
Conservation Plan in a timely manner. The Permittee shall submit progress
reports concerning implementation of the plan on September 30, 1995 and
September 30, 1999.

B. Permittee shall establish and/or maintain data gathering procedures that allow
amounts of water to be accounted into various categories. These categories may
be by either meter size or use, such as residential, commercial, industrial,
unaccounted, and other. The procedures must produce data suitable for developing
reliable estimates of current water use and projections of future water demand.

22. FUTURE WATER SOURCES
The Permittee shall pursue the planning, development, and implementation of alternate
water sources prior to the expiration of this permit. As stated in Condition 20.B, if
unacceptable adverse impacts "are occurring or are anticipated to occur, due to the
increased withdrawals, the Permittee will be required to decrease withdrawals from the
river, and to makeup water (beyond an annual average quantity of 62 MGD) from another
water source. Therefore, the Permittee shall evaluate alternative water supply
options during the term of this permit to avoid the possibility that water demands
will not be able to be met, due to permitting constraints. The Permittee shall be
prepared to exercise these alternative water supply options whether the reservoir
quantities are allowed to be increased to 82 MGD or not.

For the term of this permit, the Permittee shall provide the District with the status
of alternative water supply options that the Permittee is currently undertaking. The
report shall be included in the annual report required by Condition 23. The report
shall include updates on the Aquifer Storage and Recovery study, Hooker's Point Reuse
Study, Cypress Bridge interconnection, the City's potential wellfield property near
Lake Thonotosassa and Pemberton Creek, feasibility of further interconnection to the
regional system, and any other water supply options the City is pursuing. How these
sources will be managed in conjunction with the optimal withdrawal/augmentation
management schedule to be developed during the term of the permit for the reservoir
system shall be described. Further interconnection to the regional system will
include investigation of methodologies to overcome the current incompatibility of City
and Authority finished water. The updates on the Hooker's Point Reuse study will
include potential impacts to Hillsborough Bay if discharges to the Bay are decreased
due to reuse. The annual updates shall include copies of any reports the City
published or received regarding these sources. Alternate water sources shall stress
the development of the local resource, use of the lowest quality water able to be used
(including desalination), and hydrologic and environmental constraints. Development
of alternate water sources may be required prior to authorization to increase existing
source quantities.

23. ANNUAL REPORT
The Permittee shall prepare a comprehensive but concise annual report on Morris Bridge
Wellfield, Hillsborough River Reservoir and Sulphur Springs. At the Permittee's
option the Tampa Bypass Canal (TBC) may also be included in this report. For the
reservoir, the Sulphur Springs, and the TBC, only the requirements of Section "A"
below shall be required. The information required by the additional sections below
are not required for the surface water systems as these are required to be addressed
under the hydro-biological monitoring plan described in Condition 20. For the Morris
Bridge Wellfield, an assessment of the water resources and environmental systems of
the wellfield area is required for all sections listed below. This report shall
concisely summarize the elements listed below, with emphasis on the interactions
between these elements, where appropriate. Data sources shall be referenced, but no
raw data shall be included in the report. Only essential text, graphs, and tables
should be included in the report. The Permittee's staff shall arrange to meet with
District staff to discuss the draft report prior to submittal. District staff will be
