Introduction


Section 17-40.501, Florida Administrative Code, directs Florida's
water management districts to "identify specific geographical areas
that have water resource problems which have become critical and are
anticipated to become critical within the next 20 years." To that
end, the St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD) will
develop a methodology for identifying areas which have or are
projected to have critical water resource problems. As presently
conceived, this methodology is dependent on defining levels of impact
to the water resource which are considered critical for the following
categories: native vegetation, ground water quality (salt water
intrusion), surface water bodies, and existing legal users. This
approach is described in the draft Water Supply Needs and Sources
Assessment dated October 1992 included in appendix A of this report.

SJRWMD has used a team of consulting legal and technical water
resource experts to aid in the preparation of proposed evaluation
factors for salt water intrusion and impacts to existing legal users.
These evaluation factors are intended to describe critical levels of
impact to the water resource.

This team of professionals consisted of:

Peter Anderson, P.E., GeoTrans, Inc. Sterling, Virginia

L. M. Blain, Esq., Blain & Cone, P.A. Tampa, Florida

Peter Huyakorn, Ph.D., HydroGeologic, Inc. Herndon, Virginia

Vance W. Kidder, Esq. Tallahassee, Florida

Jerry Kubal, P.G., Kubal-Furr and Associates Tampa, Florida

R. David G. Pyne, P.E., CH2M Hill Southeast, Inc. Gainesville,
Florida

Peter Schreuder, P.G., Schreuder, Inc. Tampa, Florida

Jacob Varn, Esq., Carlton, Fields, Ward, Emmanuel, Smith, & Cutler,
P.A. Tallahassee, Florida

Stephen A. Walker, Esq., Messer, Vickers, Caparello, Madsen, Lewis,
Goldman, and Metz, P.A. West Palm Beach, Florida

(Mr. Charles Tibbals, Chief, USGS Orlando Subdistrict Office and Irwin
Kantrowitz, Caribbean Area Hydrologist, USGS, participated in this
process in an advisory capacity.)

A sample of the contract between SJRWMD and the consultants is
included in appendix B of this report.

This report contains a description of the consultant team
process, important documents associated with the process, and a
summary of the consultants' comments which were generally agreed upon
by the consultant group and those which the staff considers to be most
significant.
