APPENDIX I

PROPOSED EXISTING LEGAL USER EVALUATION FACTORS
REVISED SEPTEMBER 30, 1993








Proposed Existing Legal User Impact Criteria


Objective to limit the impacts of proposed ground water withdrawals
on the quantity and quality of ground water sources supplying existing
legal uses of ground water


Proposed Criteria

1. In areas where the potentiometric surface of the Floridan aquifer
is higher than land surface year round, but is projected to
decline below land surface in response to projected increases in
water use, the impact to existing legal users would be considered
unacceptable.

Note: This would provide limited protection to users of
ground water supplied by free-flowing wells.

2. In areas where Floridan aquifer water levels are currently less
than 20 ft below land surface, but are projected to be greater
than 20 ft below land surface in response to projected increases
in water use, the impact to existing legal users would be
considered unacceptable.

Note: This would provide protection to users of ground water
withdrawing from wells equipped with centrifugal pumps
that cannot pump water from depths greater than 25 ft.

3. In areas where the quality of ground water in the Floridan
aquifer is projected to exceed the limits described in the
proposed evaluationfactors for salt water intrusion in the Upper
Floridan aquifer, the impact to existing legal users would be
considered unacceptable.
