4.B. Operations Plan. With the intent to clarify and constrain operational practices for the
eleven well fields listed in Exhibit 1, the AUTHORITY shall submit to the DISTRICT by July 1,
1998, an OPERATIONS PLAN that describes how the AUTHORITY shall operate its water
supply system including the eleven listed well fields in order to minimize adverse environmental
impacts associated with withdrawals from those well fields. The OPERATIONS PLAN shall:
(1) Define and constrain how the Authority will operate existing and new water
supply production facilities;
(2) Provide the protocol under which the AUTHORITY will select among available
interconnected supply sources to meet demand;
(3) Provide the protocol under which the AUTHORITY will rotate among available
interconnected supply sources to minimize environmental stresses;
(4) Rely upon ground water elevations in the aquifer systems as a surrogate for water
levels in wetlands and lakes, at a specified set of existing and proposed monitor
wells, to gauge environmental stresses in and around the well fields wherein
increased ground water elevations will denote reduced environmental stress;
(5) Include procedures for analyzing relationships between the distribution and rate
of ground water withdrawal at the well fields and the associated Floridan and
surficial aquifer system drawdown, using available hydraulic models;
(6) Include procedures for selecting optimal scenarios for the distribution and rate of
ground water withdrawals from the well fields, using available mathematically-
based optimization software, based on projected demand, such that ground water
levels in the surficial aquifer system are maximized according to a specified
weighting/ranking system as a surrogate for water levels in wetlands and lakes;
(7) Include in the optimization analysis a weighting/ranking system to enable priority
factors to be applied to reduce environmental stress preferentially at selected
locations,.ywith such factors to be associated with the specified surficial aquifer
monitor wells;
(8) Propose a set of surficial aquifer monitor wells and a priority weighting system
for those wells, and include data and software for hydraulic modeling and
optimization modeling of alternative well field operational scenarios; and,
(9) With the AUTHORITY's July 1, 1998, submittal, include an outline for the
required annual update report.










The OPERATIONS PLAN shall be submitted to the DISTRICT annually by July 1, in the form
of an update report, for review and approval by the DISTRICT and shall be subject to any
required permitting or permit modification. The annual update report shall include, but not be
limited to, the following: (a) data and documentation concerning improvements in hydraulic
model calibration; (b) data and documentation concerning improvements in optimization
software; (c) proposed changes in production well locations and/or withdrawal rates; (d) proposed
changes in monitor well locations and/or priority weighting factors; and, (e) proposed changes in
the OPERATIONS PLAN to accommodate new supply sources. The AUTHORITY may propose
modifications to the OPERATIONS PLAN from time to time. Any modification to the
OPERATIONS PLAN shall require the prior approval of the DISTRICT. The OPERATIONS
PLAN shall be modified when new water supply capacity is added to the AUTHORITY's water
supply system. The DISTRICT's approval of the OPERATIONS PLAN or modifications shall
not be unreasonably withheld as long as the OPERATIONS PLAN minimizes adverse
environmental impacts associated with withdrawals from the well fields listed in Exhibit 1 and is
otherwise consistent with this AGREEMENT, the CONSOLIDATED PERMIT and applicable
law.
